I appreciate your offer to help, Scott. It sounds like a wonderful idea.
I do wonder, however, if it would be possible to get a room in the SEL at the same time. Make it easier for people to install both at the same time if they desire.
Michael was not seriously berating Alek for his choice of OS, it was
only a friendly ribbing. No need to accuse him of a sense of elitism,
even if you are more fair and enlightened ;-)
I can probably (help) reserve a room for you guys in Scott Labs, which
is right next to SEL.
May I suggest that the Open Source club not adopt your sense of
elitism? In the Real World(tm), you'll be hard pressed to find any
organization that uses exclusively open source software from
end-to-end. A good computer user should use the best tool for the job.
Sometimes a closed solution is the best one for the job.
Moreover, open source software encompasses A LOT more than just
operating systems. I use Mac OSX on a MacBook Pro because it was
issued to me as part of my job. I use open source software atop the
closed source OS as much as possible; and I advocate open source
software when it's appropriate.
