|Linux Fest North West Day 1

The booth was set up on Friday before Fedora Game Night but the large TV didn't arrive until Saturday morning, so we had a little work to do Saturday morning. We were showing games in Fedora featuring the Fedora Labs Game Spin.
On the OLPC we showed two games, Implode and Maze, always a draw. To demonstrate “convert your XP computer to a Fedora Workstation and still play your games”, we ran some of the games from the Games Spin on my little atom processor computer with WineHQ. To appeal to the serious gamer we showed STEAM, the client is part of the Fedora repository. The large TV was for the SuperTuxKart tournament.
Guests had questions about all of these systems, the OLPC, XP replacement, STEAM gaming and game-pad interfaces. Many of them tried out the SuperTuxKart game, receiving an entry card for the elimination tournament in the afternoon. The elimination races were close but Roko Spain (middle) eliminated Shivek Bnonote and Tyson Van Dyke for the gold medal.
The Saturday exhibits ended with the world famous auction, followed by the after party featuring the Alpha Geek Trivia Contest.
