Ubuntu @ Intel LAN Party

This weekend I was asked (begged) to help out at a yearly event where some local Ubuntu advocates go and attempt to convince local hard core gamers to try and have a duel boot of Ubuntu and see what progress is being made on gaming in the platform.

Here are some of the photos from the event:

It was a very positive event with a great number of people exclaiming their pain at not being able to run their most cherished games on Ubuntu. Almost everyone knew about Ubuntu and a great number of them loved it… if it wasn’t for some of the pain you have to go through to make it work.

That’s where getting the word out about playonlinux and getdeb… programs and sites that can really make a difference to the average PC gamer trying out Ubuntu.
