I dont think it is a huge hassle, it just needs
someone who can spare the time to organise it, and
when we discussed it before in the LUG, not many
people could spare the time.

This sounds cool, and it might be a good idea to do an
event such as an Open Day for Linux where people can
come along and see a bunch of old machines set up like
a business and demonstrating that Linux can do it all
for you.

If you would be interesting in organising this Steve,
I am sure lots of people in the LUG would be able to
lend a hand...I sure would. :D
