Hi there,

I may have a source of basic/mid/good spec, low-cost, second-user laptops that prospective attendees could order in advance to install Ubuntu on and take away with them, if they wanted to. Would that be of any interest do you think? (I've just emailed the supplier to confirm prices, which I'll post, if anyone thinks this is a good idea).

Apart from anything else, it would demonstrate to the supplier that there's a demand for machines with Linux/Ubuntu/something-other-than-Windows out there.

Best regards, Des

I was thinking of running a ubuntu for beginners workshop in the new year, something to explain the system and the philosophy to some average windows/mac users. I think that the key audience would be those who are quite political, generally a bit rebellious, or 
anti-capitalist - but people who didn't know about ubuntu before hand. We have a lot of these people in Manchester, not too-hard to get a group together : )

I'm not very good at computers but I am good at running events and making things simple. I can't do much till after the 5th of January cause I have too much uni work on. But after than I am free to do!

Who would like to help and do too?

Hi Anna,

Thats sounds like a great idea.

I'd like to help, in some way. I've run events before and currently have a group of Ubuntu Gurus that run installfests and provide Ubuntu centric guidance at events.

Take a look at my blog for more info

Also, myself, Jon Spriggs and Michael Dorrington organise an event called Ucubed, an Ubuntu / Debian event in Manchester. The next one is scheduled for the 2nd of April 2011. Maybe you could run a similar workshop then aswell?

Happy to help / advise.
