@ Gadget Show Live

On (and off) over the last few days I have been participating with others from the Faculty and Corporate Marketing at the Open University in presenting our ‘wares’ at the Gadget Show live.

Quite the geekfest, in the world of gadgets and technology, this is a definite place of annual pilgrimage.

Speaking to many varied and interesting souls at our stand and situated by the ‘exposed computer system’, I have found the many and varied interested in what we have done with a reasonably old personal computer and a current version of Ubuntu Linux (9.10).

Personal interest has been noticing ...


  • How many adults are aware of Linux but “were afraid to try”
  • The number of children who have never heard of, or have been exposed to Linux
  • The occasional ‘expert’, young and old who is impressed by what we are doing at the Open University with Linux and other technology offerings.
The computer is a pretty sight ....
