MDV

In order to bring Linux to new users and present the new features and technologies available in Mandriva Linux 2009, Mandriva is mobilizing its network of Linux User Groups (LUGs) to coordinate a worldwide Installfest on November 22nd, November 2008.

Installations of Mandriva Linux One and Free will take place all around the world, thanks to the Linux community. Major participating locations will include the United States, China, Poland, Argentina and France. Last year, Mandriva install fests gathered more than 1,500 participants in more than 60 cities in 20 countries such as the United States, Argentina, China and Morocco. This major event was covered in all media.

Expert Mandriva Linux users are invited to assist beginners to help them get started with the operating system. Participants will be able to:

* Get help on installing Mandriva Linux 2009 on their laptop or desktop free of charge. They will also have the opportunity to install Linux and keep their Microsoft Windows® installed for a soft migration.
* View demonstrations of all that can be done with Mandriva Linux 2009 thanks to a Live CD that launches the operating system without any need for installation.
* Get answers to their questions.
* Meet other Mandriva Linux users, and chat with their local community.

Pondering FOSS foundations

In the case of the Document Foundation, the LibreOffice project needed an independent, solid and meritocratic entity dedicated to support it. In other terms, the OpenOffice.org community wanted to be its own boss and stop relying on corporate – or even third party – good will. If you attend the Community Track on the 31st you will be able to learn more about the Document Foundation and the other entities, but my message here is that while there is no silver bullet in these matters, forcing a community be hosted or to bend to a software vendor never works. It bends if it wants to; it goes whereever it wishes to go. In the case of the Document Foundation, independence and community rule prevailed over convenience; today the results do not need to be proven anymore. But it does not mean we hold the truth more than anybody else: we just ensured the community was in charge. Read more
