It all started with...

Hi Lists;

For anyone interested but short on bandwidth, I have the following up-to-date distros available:

Home/Home Office: - UBUNTU 8.10 in i386 and x64 - FEDORA 10 in x64 both LiveCD AND install DVD.

Office: - CentOS 5.2 i386 install DVD - Mandriva 2008 i386 install DVD

The Fedora Live CD doesn't feature OpenOffice, so it's more a test tool/demo tool for your hardware than a concrete install solution.

Anybody interested in a particular distro may request it, expect 3 days for a CD and 9 for a DVD.

I always keep my old install/demo discs at hand, so if you need to re-install a fresh software stack on older hardware, just ask here. [For reference this is being written on a 8 years old P4 1.6 with 512RAM that is very slightly sluggish under Fedora9 but was excellent with openSUSE 10.1 and Fedora7]

I am thinking of formalising an AdvocacyThingy one way or another, for now, let's say:

-Single CD's or DVD's of any distro are free if you pick up from my office (next to Pencil/SOS Clinic); -I can have them delivered to your door in PP for US$ 1; -"Test Your Hardware" service for free in my office: come with your laptop & try any Linux flavour you'd like without touching your hard drive. A full install may be done in less than 2 hours.

And Soon I want to: -Put an online repository of my distros archive - I do have a lot actually.

I am thinking of calling it "The Tropical Ice Cube Club" 'cause it'll be a refuge for all sorts of Penguins :) Doesn't sound serious, I know.

Cheers fellow nerds'n'nixers
