  Want to build your own PC and
  run your favorite GNU/Linux
  distro? Brian DeLacey did all
  the research and suffered the
  battle wounds, so you don't
  have to. See how he built a
  super GNU/Linux desktop for
  under $400 and get your
  questions answered.
  Brian has recently built
  GNU/Linux PCs for under $400,
  under $300 and under $200!
  Find out how he did it.  As an
  added bonus, Brian will demo
  the newest Beagle Bone Black
  running Debian. There is truly
  something for everyone in this
  talk. And as always, everyone
  is welcome so bring a friend.
