Re: [K12OSN] NCLS-TuXlabs for Schools: A smashing success!



Yeah, thanks to all who made the K12LTSP conference in Minneapolis possible! I was totally new to the project and it is definitely something were interested in. Perhaps the greatest benefit for me was seeing that other schools around Minnesota are "using" Linux throughout their schools... even the "classroom" projects were super inspiring. Some of us use Linux in a different way, but I think the K12LTSP project would be a much simpler and easier way to accomplishing this task. Thank you guys so much for putting this on.
 
PS. Please put me down as a contributor in whichever way I can, for the next K12LTSP conference here in Minnesota. I'm just a beginner to all the Linux stuff but I'd still like to help to make Linux a success and a viable solution for schools.

I agree, it was awesome.  I can't wait for this to grow in the way that
David's NELS has.  David, quit posting, you make me wish I was out there :-)
 
I will try and get two new tabs added to the nclinux.net site this afternoon.
I will add a section for downloads, and a photo gallery.  I will put the
presentations in the downloads section and Petre can upload the photos to the
gallery.
 
Thanks to all those who attended.
