Worldwide 2009 Mandriva Linux Installfest

Filed under

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.

The SRI specification adds a new "integrity" HTML attribute when loading such assets where you can specify a hash of the file source expected -- the loaded resource must then match the hash for it to be loaded.
