The University of Cincinnati Laboratory for Recreational Computing is hosting their quarterly Installfest next Wednesday, 10/14 from Noon til 10pm on campus. These events are a great time to get introduced to not only Linux and open source software but to your local Linux community members. You can both get help running Linux or offer your expertise to your peers! The event is open to both students and the general public.
Check out the details here including confirmation for the exact building & room where the Installfest will be held.
