Summary

This will be an InstallFest in the spirit of 'days of old', however with a slight twist. If you are able to bring an old laptop/VM you don't mind getting potentially wrecked and some old distro's say circa 2008/9 or whatever you can find. We'll go down memory lane and see what we can break and what weird issues occur that you just don't see anymore.

I'd like to start the meeting off if possible with a quick segment on checking your downloads in the light of the Linux Mint download page compromise whilst it is current and in everybody's thoughts. It will be only say 30 minutes at most and then we'll get down to business as above.
