  • Mark Davis gave a presentation on Lake Taylor's major revision to its "resident computers". They are kiosk mode, Linux-based, networked computers based around Jetway Atom board, mounted on overbed tables or ergonomic wall mounts. The FOSS software is based on a Linux distro heavily modified by Mark to run X and Icewm (and other services) through custom startup scripts with a "deep freeze" type setup to offer Internet, games, and educational apps.
  • Henry Griggs gave a presentation on how to manage Slackware Linux's repository settings/package management system to get the most out of installing and updating one's system. Notes available here: http://henrysnotes.org/pres/index.html
  • Additional news about the Linux mobile scene, which continues to heat up and intensify.
