One of my New Year’s resolutions was to try and use Linux more often, and to improve the Lincoln LUG website, and to not attend any more LUG meetings with a non-Linux machine. This all came under the heading of “More Linux”.
I’ve not started on improving the website yet, but I did have an idea that might go some way to fulfilling the other two requirements of my resolution; I’m thinking it might be a good idea to install a new distro (on an old machine) each month and take it along to the LUG meeting. If I do this, by the end of the year I will have installed and tried at least 12 different Linux distros.
I’m also thinking that it might be nice to allow others to use the machine too, so I’m going to physically label the machine with the system’s administrator (or root) username and password. I won’t have any personal data on the machine, so if a renegade LUG member attempts to bork the system, accidentally or on purpose, it really won’t matter.
Anyhow, that’s the plan. The first LUG meeting of the year takes place next week and I’ll be taking along a fresh install of elementary OS.
