[vox-announce] Reminder: LUGOD meeting tonight (Mon Apr 15):"Introduction to CrunchBang Linux: The Best Distro You'veNever Heard Of"

Reminder: The Linux Users' Group of Davis meets tonight, Monday April 15th,
7pm-9pm at the public library in Davis (315 East 14th Street; Blanchard room).

Our guest speaker will be Larry Cafiero, who will present
"Introduction to CrunchBang Linux: The Best Distro You've Never Heard Of":





CrunchBang Linux, a Debian-based distro which features the Openbox
window manager, is highly customisable and provides a modern,
full-featured GNU/Linux system without sacrificing performance. Put
simply; CrunchBang could be thought of as a layer built on top of
Debian, specifically to provide a great Openbox experience.

Openbox is a highly configurable, next generation window manager with
extensive standards support, which lets you bring the latest
applications outside of a full desktop environment. Most modern
applications have been written with GNOME and KDE in mind. With
support for the latest freedesktop.org standards, as well as careful
adherence to previous standards, Openbox provides an environment where
applications work the way they were designed to.

About the Speaker:

Larry Cafiero is a long-time Free/Open Source Software advocate who is
currently a CrunchBang evangelist. Larry writes the "Larry the Free
Software Guy" and "Larry the CrunchBang Guy" blogs, and is one of the
co-founders of the Felton Linux Users Group. He also serves as the
publicity chairperson for the Southern California Linux Expo.

He lives in Felton, California, on the ocean side of the small
mountain ridge that separates the Silicon Valley from the Pacific
Ocean, where he works as a newspaper editor for the Santa Cruz
Sentinel when he's not consulting small businesses on use of FOSS
programs for his company, Redwood Digital Research.
