| Registration is open to the public for Texas 
| Linux Fest 2010, to be held at the Monarch 
| Event Center in Austin Texas. The conference 
| sessions and expo hall will be open all day 
| Saturday, April 10th. Evening social events 
| will take place on Friday night (April 9th) 
| and Saturday night (April 10th).


The Linux Community - Bringin' it...

,----[ Quote ]
| In order to do that, we not only had to count 
| on caring volunteers, we counted on a world-
| wide community to put together the distro that 
| works best for us.  That would be Linux Mint.  
| We had to count on donations provided by The 
| Linux Community to fuel the vehicles needed to 
| transport the equipment...something we still 
| count upon.  We had to rely upon scripts 
| written by people around the world to do the 
| network installations.



Final chapter looms for textbooks in Texas

,----[ Quote ]
| Textbooks could be going the way of slide
| rules and Big Chief tablets within a few years
| in Texas classrooms.
| State legislation passed in the spring could
| put up-to-the-minute instructional content at
| students fingertips â either online or in
| customized printed form â eliminating the
| mass-market hardback textbook.
| The sea change could happen sooner rather than
| later, beginning as early as the 2010-11
| school year.


Texas Group Brings Linux Computers Home

,----[ Quote ]
| In 2008, The HeliOS Project built, placed and supported 329 computers where
| they were needed.  Sometimes it was necessary to travel over 100 miles to do
| it.  Admittedly, 329 computers doesnât sound like much.  Not many at all in
| the scope of things.  That is until you take into consideration one relevant
| fact.
| It was done almost exclusively by one man.  One guy in a a beat up old Isuzu
| Rodeo with questionable braking ability and over a quarter million miles on
| itâthatâs averages out to 1 computer installed in a childâs home every 26.6
| hours in a yearâs time.
