Last weekend, Kwartzlab opened its doors to host Software Freedom Day in Kitchener-Waterloo.
Software Freedom Day is an annual event that attempts to raise awareness of the importance of free software (that’s free as in freedom).
Raul Suarez from KWLUG (shown above) was on hand to give a talk to an attentive audience (shown below).

A large number of computers were donated for the event by Computer Recycling at The Working Centre. If you’re in need of a cheap PIII or P4, ask at the next TON! Proceeds will be donated to the Free Software Foundation.
Of course, being Kwartzlab, an impromptu Ethernet cabling workshop broke out…
