Bring either a laptop or desktop, we'll have have room for both.  Heck, we'll even assist you in rooting your Android phone or tablet.

Who are you?

If you are just curious about what Linux is, come by!  We'll have some demo computers setup so you can try it out before doing a full install.

Please back up your data before coming by.  While most of us have installed Linux many times, there is always that slim chance something doesn't go according to plan.  In these cases we don't want you to lose your valuable data.  Note that normally everything goes well, in 4 years I've been here we've never had anything go wrong.
