## Linux Installfest
### Wednesday 25/10/2017 | 5pm | LG26
What's this Linux thing all the cool kids are talking about? _Why should you care?_ Come on down to LG26 this Wednesday, where we'll give you the low-down on the world's most widely used operating system!
There'll be a quick overview of what Linux is & what is has to offer, followed by a hands-on tutorial where you'll install your very own Linux system, either on a Virtual Machine, or your own laptop.
This may sound like an intimidating event, but we're committed to making our talks accessible to everyone! People of all skill levels are more than welcome, and we'll be ensuring everyone's up to speed before we move on to anything new.

As all of you know, we have repeatedly highlighted that members must clean up after themselves in the Common Room. Over the past week, the room has been left messy repeatedly. As a result, the Room Committee have elected to close the room for the following 2 days. Further closures and/or loss of access to the room can be expected if this situation does not improve.
The zombies are coming!
GamesSoc's zombie-themed chase game, Humans vs Zombies, takes place next week - all week. Humans must fend off the zombies with Nerf guns, rolled-up socks, or their wit.
