Mandriva Install Party


Worldwide Install Party: Mandriva to rally its community of users in 65 towns across the globe, on November 19

30 towns from China and Brazil will participate in the event.

Mandriva, the number one European Linux publisher, will gather its
community of users across the globe during a worldwide install party on
Saturday, November 19th.


Following the release of Mandriva Linux 2006, Mandriva is mobilizing its network
of Linux User Groups (LUGs). Free community installation sessions will
take place around the world. Major participating locations include the
United States, Brazil, Canada, China, Moroco, and the island of Reunion.


More than 60 cities are involved, including a dozen in China and 15 in Brazil.


Expert Mandriva Linux users are invited to assist beginners to help
them get started with the operating system. A variety of goodies will
be distributed to the participants.

Funda Wang, a Chinese contributor to the Mandriva Linux project explains:
"I've been using Mandriva Linux for several years, thanks to the continual
improvements made for Chinese users. The install party is a great
opportunity for people to know what is a user-friendly and secure
operating system. There will be a dozen places all over China
(including Taiwan, of course) holding the event on November 19th.
Mandriva Linux is a wonderful choice when one wants to switch to Linux,
this is the reality users will have the opportunity to attest at the
install parties."


Participants will be able to:
- Get help on installing Mandriva Linux on their laptop or desktop
- View demonstrations of all that can be done with Mandriva Linux
- Get answers to their questions
- Meet other Mandriva Linux users


As a testament to its ease of use, Mandriva Linux is being increasingly
preloaded on computers by leading hardware manufacturers.

In the belief that installation is one the toughest steps to complete in
order to have beginners adopt a new operating system, Mandriva invites
anyone wishing to better know Linux to join the free installation
parties that are being organized on November 19. These installation
parties are made possible thanks to the power of the knowledge sharing
spirit well established within the open source community.


The number of Mandriva Linux users worldwide is estimated to be in the order of 6 to 8 million.


About Mandriva Linux 2006
Mandriva Linux 2006 is the result

Linux for a wide array of computing requirements such as office,
multimedia, Internet and servers. It is the only Linux system to be
officially compliant with Intel® Centrino® mobile technology and to

Internet software. Other key features include desktop search,
interactive firewall and auto-install server functionality.

这样的大事情,这样的传统,现在已经很少了。这种心情和对 LUG 的狂热消失了有关。

另外,看到了一本书,Prefactoring By Ken Pugh。觉得购书看书的计划应该再多两本。也就是,加上那本 Refactoring: Improving the Design of Existing Code by Martin Fowler, Kent Beck, John Brant, William Opdyke, Don Roberts 。根据目前的效率,唉。

update:
在 linuxfans 看到了安装盛典的筹备,fundawang 老妖怪在组织。


东南大学组织情况
m_hunter
我是南京东南大学软件学院的在校研究生,我想组织一下,我们研一可以参加的有20多个人,加上本科生大概超过40。我们软院想您也知道,设备没得说。感兴趣的人到时肯定更多,我们明天和院领导商量一下,如果可以的话办成学校的Install Party,如果不可以就我们软院内部交流,50人。机器我们这都是人手一台, Very Happy 宣传材料也没问题。

我们不打算搞得太复杂,只是进行:
1。Linux的安装演示
2。Linux下的软件安装演示
3。Linux下的软件开发
4。交流

fundawang 说,
活动散发的横幅和传单需要自己准备,Mandriva也不报销 Mr. Green 再声明一次,活动尽量体现大家自己动手参与。你可以搞一些安装竞赛之类的,比如看谁在最短时间内让自己的QQ上线,或者最快将指定文件cp到U盘之类。

Mandriva可以大量提供的东西,我所知道的就只有鼠标垫、笔记本贴纸、圆珠笔和海报这些便宜货,光盘、T恤、公仔可能无法大量供应。我周一的时候再和这个活动的主管联系一下,看那边究竟能够对活动支持到什么程度。也许让CEO发表个全球讲话之类的


最后的情况,大概每个组可以分到将近二十张光盘?我想已经很不错了。还是觉得是一项很热闹很好玩的活动,全球同时多少人啊!虽然不限于 Mandriva,但是大家一起用蓝色的蓝色的和黄色的魔法星星多好看
