Microsoft Installfest?

I felt a bit like in the Twilight Zone this morning when several friends from the community tipped me off that the Central American University (UCA) in Managua had put together a Microsoft Student Club and were about to organize their very first event at the university campus: Microsoft Installfest 2010.

It’s quite funny to see how they’re trying to copy the LUG formula with formal community structures and events.

Sad thing is that UCA was one of the leading universities in Nicaragua in terms of FOSS adoption and embracement of free knowledge and open content.

Anyway, I think this is a great opportunity for the local university LUG to show their muscle and try to hinder the Microsoft invasion.
