Yesterday, we celebrated in my country, Perú, the release of Fedora 17 according the plan. The event that took place in Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú was the first event in Perú that celebrate a Release Party Fedora… ever!
Students that belong FLOSS communities like LinuxIDES, San Marcux, COSOLIG, UCSSINUX participated in the workshop to help other students installing Fedora in their laptops.
We installed and configured VMWare, we showed G-Parted, we installed Fedora 17 and configured it choosing GNOME desktop software. We presented GNOME, its functionalities and shared some experiences with GNOME and Fedora.
At the end of the workshop, another project was presented: Sugar. This is a Peruvian project that runs over Fedora 14, and it is promoting to thousands of children in my country, the use of Free Software. We are going to get involved in this project, and next Saturday we have a hackfest in Escuelab. An OLPC XO was showed during the Sugar project presentation:
