For those who aren’t aware, Microsoft started a program through House Party to encourage people to throw Windows 7 House Parties … by giving them a copy of Windows 7 Ultimate Signature Edition … and a bunch of surplus stuff from Party City. Being a big Linux and open source advocate, I immediately saw this for what it really was: a great chance to show people Linux!
Here’s a look at what comes in a Windows 7 Party Pack….
Underwhelmed? So was I. But I will press on. I am going to hold my “Linux Party (with Windows 7)” at USC Upstate. Likely in the Hodge building, on 10/15, round about 3:00 PM. Unlike the Microsoft
FUD marketing department, I intend to give people who show up a chance to look and choose for themselves. Don’t laugh, people may actually show up. I’m going to get the professors to alert the CS/CIS students, and put up some quick and dirty fliers. I intend to ask a few basic questions to people who show up:
1) Windows 7 or Linux?
2) Windows 7 or Windows XP Pro?
3) Windows XP Pro or Linux?
4) A hot railroad spike up your ass or Windows Vista?
5) A hot railroad spike up your ass or Windows 7?
Finding my Windows 7 party pack ill equipped for the task at hand, I took the opportunity to uh …. beef it up a little ….
Here’s to showing the public just how inferior Windows is! Stay tuned for a detailed documentary of how things at the
Linuxfest Windows 7 “Party” goes!
