With Tux welcoming us We knew it was going to be a Great event
Getting Ready. We have 2 XO's with Sugar, 1 with Fedora 12 and 1 laptop with Fedora 12 all we need is the second laptop with Fedora 13.
ahh *&# so many wires...power..ethenet..wifi..oh that's my shoe laces..
We thought it was going to be empty this early in the morning,so many people setting up ..time to get picture before the madness begins.
LinuxFest Northwest did not officially open until 9:30am. We thought everyone were vendors we were wrong. Tammy trying to find our badges and we started to get people at our booth and it was just after 8:30am.
No he is not a vendor looking for a badge, someone else asking about Fedora and the OLPC's. and it is still not 9:30am.
More people still not officially open, Tux looks like the only one not needing coffee.
One of the other booths at LFNW
Another Vendor at the event.
This is one of the booths at the event that I really thought was pretty cool. It was the robots that the seniors worked on for there school project. Which I later found out was a national event.
Close up of one of the robots, pretty impressive. All parts were modded by students.
A couple of robots, reminded me of one of the cool Linux games in the Fedora Repo called Pingus.
Some of the really cool things that were going to be raffled off this year. That's right look close, 4 Cooler Master Nvidia Edition Elite 334 cases.
Some of the people hoping they have the right raffle ticket.
Oh yes, it has been a great day. Now to hang out with the great people that made it a great day. Vendors, volunteers, and guests.
The lay out and food was great thanks to LFNW and the hospitality of The Hampton Inn.
One of my personal favourites of this event is the FOOD.
As you can see I am not the only one that likes the food.
Even with the slight chance of rain more people showing up for the lunch.
The line is getting longer I need to stop taking pictures and get in line.
Across the courtyard from where the booths are set up is the Haskell canter where they had set up a GameDen and Tutorial area to try out all of the Distros.
Some of the unsung heroes of LinuxFest NorthWest.
The first day is almost over. They all worked very hard and we all thank them for there time and energy.
Never alone with Tux and the Open Source Community behind you.
Our Table on the first day was busy all day.
Sunday morning being the second day started out with Chris,coming back to the booth from Saturday. We had discussed a way to try to get his dial up working on his laptop.
Even Sunday was not really all that slow. They did great on Promoting this event with 700+ on the first day and 300+ on the second day they did great.
Not much to say Jeff is hoarse from his talk and I am hoarse from my non stop talking,lucky I am part Irish and have the gift of gab.
We stayed crowded all day at Linux Fest.
This is the "break" area prep area for the sessions.
More people taking a break, oh yes look at her button could it be Fedora. Looks like she just saw she can't eat it all another session to go to.
Got a chance to get a coffee, and oh yes even the Vikings like Fedora.
Could not even tell you what was running on Jeff's laptop, but he had a lot of people interested in the software that he was running, and even more interested in his talk.
And we can not forget our friend the XO guy..
