Lindependence 2008: Kicking the Windows habit for one month

by Carla Schroder

The energetic, never-sleeping Ken Starks, of Tux 500 fame, has launched a new project that involves the town of Felton, California. As Ken's blog says:

On July 4th, 2008; a significant percentage of Felton, California, will go Microsoft-free for one week...maybe an entire month.

How does a person pull off an event of this size?

Since August of 2007, Larry Cafiero of HeliOS Solutions West has established a base and has been discussing the project with residents, business owners and community leaders. Businesses and home users alike are interested in learning a better way to operate their computers. For a week...maybe a month...maybe for good. As Larry meets with other residents and business owners, the number of people who want to participate is growing daily.

I'm always amazed by Ken's energy and ingenuity. Read all about it here:

heya carla,

this is now underway in Felton. I'm sure Ken and Larry would appreciate a follow up with this...most major news/media places aren't running this historic event.
