Thank you to our sponsor!


Want to build your own PC and
run your favorite GNU/Linux
distro? Brian DeLacey did all
the research and suffered the
battle wounds, so you don't
have to. See how he built a
super GNU/Linux desktop for
under $400 and get your
questions answered.

Brian has recently built
GNU/Linux PCs for under $400,
under $300 and under $200!
Find out how he did it. As an
added bonus, Brian will demo
the newest Beagle Bone Black
running Debian. There is truly
something for everyone in this
talk. And as always, everyone
is welcome so bring a friend.

Transportation & Parking

The Akamai office is a short walk from the Kendall Square T
