2019 Installfest

Success stories from this weekend’s Installfest, brought to you by LUG.

Recap

Thanks to everyone who could make it to this weekend’s Installfest! We had a solid turnout, with about a dozen students looking to install Linux in one way, shape, or form (VM, dualboot). A few upperclassmen LUG members also showed up to help out - thanks to you as well! Besides the usual Windows headaches, Installfest was smooth sailing. For the most part, every LUG member who arrived in the hopes of installing Linux was able to successfully do so. The main distribution that students were able to install was Ubuntu 18.04. One LUG member tried her hand at Manjaro on a Virtual Machine and said she hopes to do a full installation on one of her older laptops. We hope everyone likes their new installs!

Thanks to all those who stopped by!
