When: January 26th from 14:00-06:00 Eastern Standard Time
Where: irc.binrev.net #media
What: Linux Multimedia “extra content” Sprint
Microsoft Windows and Mac OSX come with lots of media of different types of media — audio, photos, clip art, fonts, and much more.
Linux multimedia distros don’t have this same breadth of material. And someone has decided to do something about that.
The Great Linux Multimedia Sprint will take place on January 26 starting at 14:00 Eastern Time (GMT -5) and run until 06:00. Participants will meet in IRC to coordinate the effort, then work on downloading and collecting material that will then be made available for anyone to download.
I think this is a great idea, and will remove one more point from the “I can’t use Linux because …” arguments.
