The real fun is in "watching the lights come on" for folk willing to
stand around and hear us talk. That alone was worth my trip.
We had 3-4 different distros running (Puppy, pcPuppyOS, Ubuntu and
Debian), several how-to sessions, several demos of audio/video/games,
and a compare/contrast between Microsoft PowerPoint on a Vista laptop
and OpenOffice Present on an Ubuntu laptop. (I personally think it looks
better in the Linux environment!)
We also had a few glitches. Once upon a time, I thought I was the only
one who couldn't get a wireless laptop online with Linux. Today,
apparently, I was the only one who could. We might need a little more
emphasis in here on wireless networking.
