the ones i talk to cite the success of ubuntu and the much easier 
installation of other distros as reasons not to have hands on sessions. 
the same argument has been made before on this list.
this is the first academic year at the university i haven't had a 
student come to see me because they couldn't get linux installed, or 
more usually wifi to work.

specialist hands on might be a different matter and a good talk is 
probably of interest to many people.

i think the days of taking machines apart in the lab to install a distro 
have gone :)
