> but to also talk about effective Linux advocacy and the desktop? Its
> coming and we want you...
> For one week only starting April 17th 2006, Jono Bacon from the UK and
> Ted Haegar from the USA will tour the UK, cramming in as many LUGs as
> possible and providing some interesting and entertaining
> presentations. Supported by Novell and OpenAdvantage, this tour is
> entirely free for your LUG - you supply an audience, and Ted and Jono

> If you are are interested in having Jono and Ted visit your LUG, send

> I think this could be very good for the LUG, and also for the Open

> with local businesses as Novell is very well known in business.
> I think it's an idea :)
