Re: Eastern Massachusetts Linux Fest Inquiry

If there are any Linux companies or colleges that use Linux in

Fest that highlights that as well as the recent releases of Ubuntu
7.10 and openSUSE 10.3 will need to be represented.  The communities
out here don't know anything about Linux and a FEST out here is
vital!!!

Really? I live in the Boston area and a substantial number of other folks who work on Fedora live here as well. Red Hat has an office in the area as does Novell. The GNOME summit was a couple weekends ago in Cambridge, and next weekend there is going to be FOSS Camp in Cambridge as well, on MIT's campus. So I am not sure that it is fair to say the communities in eastern Massachusetts don't know anything about Linux any more so than other areas of Massachusetts. Then again it depends what you mean by "community" -

What target audience are you looking to reach? Since you appear to not be particularly concerned about Fedora for this, you might want to get in touch with the Boston LUG group: http://blu.org/
