Melbourne Linux Users Group Participates in World-Wide Linux Demo Day

The Melbourne Linux Users Group is participating in the world-wide Linux Demo Day by holding a local event in Melbourne, Florida. The event will run during regular store hours from 10:00am until 9:00pm with an introductory presentation on Linux and related Open Source software at the top of every hour. There will be giveaways and door prizes including distributions of the Linux OS, books and T-shirts donated by Linux companies like Red Hat and Suse. The event is not meant as a statement about any specific operating system, but rather to highlight the fact that a choice exists for both businesses and consumers in terms of software tools.
