Take the plunge: Start using Linux as your primary OS

*

Excerpt

You've thought about Linux for a while. Maybe you've installed a distribution like Ubuntu, but it didn't stick. Now is your chance to take the plunge.

Description

This will be a hands-on introduction to Linux. Ubuntu CDs will be provided, and we as a group will install them, and answer any questions that come up along the way.

We will also show people how to adopt a “Linux frame of mind”. The answers to your questions are out there, if you know where to look and who to ask.

By the end of this workshop you should have Ubuntu set up. You will also know a bit about the linux culture and how to find answers to the questions you have tomorrow.
