Mandriva Linux 2008 will be released soon! In order to celebrate this event and to bring Linux to new users and present the new features available in Mandriva Linux 2008, Mandriva would like to coordinate a worldwide Installfest on November 17th, 2007. (An Installfest is an event at which people get together to do mass installations of computer operating systems or software, most often the GNU / Linux operating system and other open source software)
Expert Mandriva Linux users are invited to assist beginners to help them get started with the operating system. Participants will be able to get help on installing Mandriva Linux 2008 on their laptop or desktop, get all their questions answered and meet other Linux users.
Sri Lanka too will be celebrating the release of Mandriva Linux 2008 with the rest of the world by having Installfests right here in Sri Lanka.
Stay tuned to FOSS.lk for more details on this event!
