The party is organized and is taking place for the benefit of the 234120 students, which will *have* to use Linux for their homework. Therefore, it makes a certain sense to give them priority. However, I don't like complex algorithms, and I'm in favor of the "you register in advance -> you get installed, you don't -> we'll install if there'll be time". Anyone, not just 234120 students can register! I do hope 234120 students will be *strongly* encouraged to register. It is true that except for the staff of 234120, the rest of us are volunteering to help with this. That's why the installation party is open to everyone. -- Muli Ben-Yehuda http://www.mulix.org
