Our team plan involves bringing a test production machine to the
Library along with our presentation to show what the differences are.
We would highlight how easy it is to get around current software
issues with the demo machine and hopefully accentuate those with the
possibility to expand the functionality of library computers beyond
their current use.

Several members of the Colorado team (including myself) will be
visiting libraries in the next few weeks to ascertain what needs they
have and how Ubuntu can meet them.  I'll be sure to post these to the
list when we have them compiled into a logical fashion.
