[OS:N:] Software Freedom Day - July 4th

Hello Folks,

We're inviting you to a party. Come join us and celebrate Free Software!

http://k12ltsp.org/software_freedom.html

If you're not in Portland then you'll find information on the page above for
hosting your own party. Help LUGs and schools connect in your area!

Schools here in Portland have enjoyed great support from our local Linux
user group PLUG. We wanted to get together with them and say thanks. We're
also hosting the event as an open house for other schools interested in
using Linux. Free software and refreshments for all!!!

The hours are from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon so you'll still have time to enjoy
other traditional July 4th holiday events.

Directions: http://www.riverdale.k12.or.us/direct.html

Keep up with news of other Software Freedom Day celebrations on
http://k12os.org

;-) Paul

[OS:N:] Re: [Ltsp-discuss] Software Freedom Day - July 4th

Paul,

I wish you, Eric and everybody else involved all the best
in your 2nd Freedom day.

I'd love to come out there to Portland for that event, but
I'll be in Bristol, England on the 4th, giving a tutorial
on LTSP for the UKUUG Linux conference.

I think that England is 8 or 9 hours ahead of you guys on
the west coast.  Maybe the timing will work out, and I can
be online with you guys for part of the event.

Thanks, and keep up the great work.

[OS:N:] Distribution agnostic?

Hello List Members-

My main question about this list is whether it is Linux distribution agnostic?  By that I mean, does it matter
what skill sets and experience I have with non-Red Hat versions of Linux.  I am looking forward to helping
out, but I don't want to cross any unwritten (or even written!) taboos.

Thanks

Jim Jones

Well, if you can have holy wars over text editors (vi is the only way to go by the way [kidding]), then
distribution wars should be expected, I suppose.

Makes sense.

Also makes sense.

As I read the invitation it didn't say "Red Hat Only".

As chairman of the board of directors of the Linux Professional Institute,
(www.lpi.org), I'm deeply interested in areas of Linux education, skills
certification and the Linux job market. And, unlike the RHCE program, LPI
tests for Linux skills related to every distro. We have a sponsor list
that's includes every major Linux company *except* Red Hat, and we have
a community of supporters and participants from all over.

It's in our interest to see all of Linux grow, whether RH or Debian or
Slackware or [insert your favorite distro here]. Even Red Hat has said on
numerous occasions that they have no interest being the leader in a field
of one.

I know I didn't come here to talk Red Hat only. The issues this list
claims to want to deal with are far bigger than any one company.

- Evan

Re: [OS:N:] Distribution agnostic?

In the terms of Linux then yes I would think so. Now we do have our holy 
wars but I dont think that should cause to may problems. Redhat is focused 
on for two reasons on this list.

1.) It is run by redhat =)
2.) They are one of the most popluar distributions.

But yes I would say this list is agnostic. I have not been run away yet.

I didn't see one either, but I didn't want to presume and wrinkle any feathers.

I have begun to study for that test.  Hopefully I will get some time to devote solely to study and be able to pull
off a Level 1 certification by the end of the year.  

The RHCE looked good and rigorous but is too expensive (first hit) and specific.  I do like the "hands on"

My guess is that the traffic has decreased as many US schools dismiss for summer breaks.  I could be wrong.

Well, I'm not a member of an organized religion -- I'm a 
Presbyterian.  ;>

-------------

I run Connectiva, Red Hat, Slackware, OpenBSD, HP-UX, Solaris, 
SunOS, and Irix in commercial production -- I guess SunOS and 
Irix are not even Open Source.  I'll yack about any ...

Wimp.  If you _have_ to use a keyboard, use ed; but _real_ hackers write 
text files directly on the platters of their hard drives with magnetized 
needles. :-)
