Worldwide Mandriva 2009 Install Fest

,----[ Quote ]
| With an announcement on the official Mandriva blog, I made a quick move to 
| get ilughyd and mukt.in registered as one among those to celebrate the 
| launch.  
| [...]
| People just loved the Mandriva interface and went eye-popping over KDE 
| widgets in combination with CompizFusion.

| Yeaterday I met a guy browsing the Linux magazines in easons. We started 
| talking about Linux and he highly recomended Mandriva. I had been using 
| Fedora for a month at that stage and to be honest I didn’t think that much of 
| it. The man managed to convince me to buy the Linux Format magazine which 
| included a live version of Mandriva.

| Every major distribution generates a lot of hype at launch, and the new

Mandriva Linux Community Newsletter #129

| One of the strengths of Mandriva has long been its popularity and strong
| community base all around the world, in areas not always considered by the
| mainstream Linux press. Continuing this fine tradition, June 14th saw a
| Mandriva installfest and conference in Nicaragua, arranged by the Nicaraguan
| Mandriva user community. The event was well-attended, and even had press
| coverage in a popular Nicaraguan newspaper (link in Spanish). Many people
| brought their systems to have Mandriva Linux installed, and many copies of
| Mandriva Linux Free and One were distributed to those who couldn't bring
| their systems to the event.

| tell latin users that we have a portal in Nicaragua.
