Mandriva, makers of the popular Linux distribution, are to hold a global Linux installfest later this month.
"In order to bring Linux to new users and present the new features and technologies available in Mandriva Linux 2007, Mandriva is mobilizing its network of Linux User Groups (LUGs) to coordinate a worldwide installfest on 21 October 2006," the company said yesterday.
Last year, Mandriva installfests gathered more than 1 500 participants in more than 60 cities in 20 countries.
