Mandriva rallies the community of Linux users in many cities across
the globe on November 17th.

In order to bring Linux to new users and present the new features and
technologies available in Mandriva Linux 2008, Mandriva is mobilizing
its network of Linux User Groups (LUGs) to coordinate a worldwide
Installfest on November 17th 2007.

Installations of Mandriva Linux One will take place all around the
world, thanks to the Linux community. Major participating locations
will include the Ecuador, China, Poland, Russia and France. 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 free of charge.

    * View demonstrations of all that can be done with Mandriva Linux

    * Get answers to their questions.

    * Meet other Mandriva Linux users, and chat with their local

The installation is often the toughest step for a beginner willing to
adopt a new operating system. This is why Mandriva invites anyone
wishing to know Linux better to join the free install fests on
November 17th or 24th. These installfests are made possible thanks to
the power of the knowledge sharing spirit, one of the keystones of the
open source community.

Be sure to check where installfests are located within your area:
