Italian Linux Day 2009

Posted on 2009/10/24


The Italian Linux Society promoted today a nation-wide event called Linux Day 2009. I went to the event that was nearest to my home, organized by the local Linux User Group (the GalLUG). They spoke to an audience that was mainly made of 18yo boys of the local technical institute, promoting the Free Open Source philosophy and demonstrating the power of Linux.

  • Presentation of the LUG and its initiatives
  • Open Source, GNU and Linux
  • How to install Puppy Linux on CD or USB Key
  • Linux and virtualization
  • inux steel (a pun on inox steel): a lesson on security
  • #!/bin/bash
  • Ideas and projects with Linux: tips for the 5th year project that the students must complete

They also prepared a stand where anyone could try Ubuntu, and they distributed Live CDs.
