The Great Linux Revolt of '98


We took it on down to CompUSA, where there was a very long line outside; surprising, given it was 12:30 am by this time. However, that made them easy targets for giving free CDs to! We unloaded all of them, several hundreds at least (? not sure). (RM adds: 500 of them.)

The gentleman on the right is receiving a free SuSE Linux CD. He looks a bit dubious, but, hey, you never know.

Interviews with the press, even! Wow.

Yep. Well, this is pretty much the event in one picture.

The party is winding down. Our fearless leader eclipses the Win98 logo.

We got together at a late-night eatery around 1:15 am. Yes, that is a penguin made of balloons that you observe at left. There were some Microsoft publicity people in CompUSA doing balloon art, and one of them made a penguin!
