of Booth (not live)
The Etherboot Project secured
a .ORG Pavillion booth at LinuxWorld Expo San Francisco 2002.
Our goal is to raise the profile of network booting and thin client technology.
We demonstrated various aspects of thin client computing, including network
booting, creation of ROM images (including demonstrations of ROM-o-matic.net),
ROM burning, server configuration, applications of network booting, and
many other topics of interest to people at the show.
And interest there was! During the exhibition hours we had almost constant
traffic at our booth, and were able to meet a lot of people and open a
lot of eyes to new possibilities.
So what follows is a brief description of our adventure at LinuxWorld,
with some pictures.
