Yeah. You know how tolerant Toronto is :wink:

Linux Caffe has its own website at http://linuxcaffe.ca/. With one
exception (the ATM), I think that everything electronic in the store
is running something open source.

BSD users are welcome too. :wink:

Actually, Austin’s right on the money… even the point of sale is
running open source.

Customers get wireless that reaches out into the park outside… to
promote tanning* and reduce the number of pasty-white hackers. =)

*not many people tan in winter, I know.

Good call! Annex ‘south’… Grace and Harbord. I’ve been going by
this by car for months and never noticed it. A very nice little
place, and they won’t kick you out if you use windows or osx. Though
the windows patrons might have to endure the various ‘re-education’
efforts inflicted upon them by their fellow customers… though they
seemed to have left Austin alone last meeting :slight_smile:

Wow! As a former Torontonian (now living in Vancouver) let me just say -
that is friggin’ cool.
I’m assuming it’s in the Annex and not Bay Street, but regardless -
awesome!

I think they leave me alone because they know that the main laptop I
have been using isn’t supportable under Linux (not without losing ~80%
of the functionality). :wink:
