Due to a scheduling mixup and TBCS hosting the FACUG state conference we had two additional October meetings:
October 23rd Pre-SIG Meeting
- We discussed “FOSS and the Windows® or Apple® Tax” and worked some Compiz Fusion magic with Ubuntu Linux.
- October 25th FACUG Conference
I presented “FOSS and the Windows or Apple Tax” and fielded FOSS questions from a receptive statewide audience.
The October 30th FOSS-SIG meeting featured a full wubi Ubuntu 8.04.1 install and configuration. We discussed the press items below and how they relate to Open Source software.
- Wubi — Ubuntu Linux Installer for Windows, nothing makes loading Linux easier.
- Parted Magic — open source replacement for Partition Magic.
- Clonezilla — open source replacement for Drive Image or Ghost, only better.
