If you're in the Kitchener-Waterloo area on 11 July, come check out
Kwartzlab and learn about installing Ubuntu. Stephen doesn't say, but
I'll bet if you were to bring along a laptop then one of Stephen's
Beautiful Assistant Geeks (BAGs) can help you with your own

Kwartzlab is in the Boehmer Box Factory
283 Duke St. W., Unit 106
Kitchener, ON
Canada N2H 3X7

I will be running an Ubuntu install workshop on July 11th. I will be
bringing a bunch of desktop systems into the lab and having participants
walk together with me through the process of installing Ubuntu 12.04 on
said computers.

The purpose of this workshop is to teach people some basic terminology
and concepts that they can apply to their general computing knowledge,
including but not limited to:

* You can boot computers from CD!
** And how to do it
* Operating Systems exist!
** And there are more than one
* Hard drives can be partitioned!
* Computers can boot more than one OS!

I expect the workshop to run from approximately 19:00 to 21:00.

This workshop is targeted at computing novices, but will likely also
have some useful information for intermediate-level users.
