Err, you mean 'GPL', right?  As it stands, I do agree with your view that
Linux could use more advertising.  IMHO, if you advertise install-fests
in, say, PC Magazine, you'd gather quite a bit of attention to Linux and
it would get a lot of people down to the install-fests.  I think the
install-fest to be a great idea, it lets people bring their computer down
their, get Linux installed and configured to work.

I'm not running the project, I'm just working on seul-admin, the
administrative software(used to setup software, configure network servers,
etc.).  Out of curiosity, what software is most commonly used in the
scientific circles you follow?  Any comments for feaures seul-admin should
have let me know.  Back to learning python...  TTYL!
