Manipur Fedora 10 Release and Install Fest 2008 at Nupilal Complex, Imphal

Fedora 10 Release and Install Fest 2008 at Nuplilal Complex Imphal powered by Fedora Project was a grand success. Students and professional from different part of Manipur attended the grand event. We were planning to start the event from 11:00 a.m. onwards but delayed for about 45 minutes. We had a attendance of nearly 150 visitors. We started our event with the presentation on Fedora 10 and Fedora project which was presented by none other then myself, Rishikesh Sharma. After the presentation, we have presented the visitors with on spot installation of Fedora 10 with one of visitors laptop. During the long process installation, we take a break with drinks and snacks. After a short break, we allow visitors to have a look at new features and packages of Fedora 10 with the Fedora Demo workstations provided for the visitors during installation. After the completion of on spot installation, we have a demonstration of all powerfull open source application which comes with Fedora 10. After the demonstration, lots of user came up and ask me further details about the installation and dual booting. After this, we have distributed the Fedora 10 CD's and DVD's which include Fedora 10 Gnome Live CD, 32 bit and 64bit DVD's and allow visitors to see what Fedora 10 can do. I have requested the visitors to contribute to Fedora if they have little time to spare and to built a Fedora operating system in our very own language "Manipuri" using our script "Meitei Mayek".

I personally thanks Computer Solutions and CD BYTE Computer for providing the necesary infrastructure to organise the event and all the visitors for making this event a grand success. I am uploading the event photos soon.
