Why Use Linux? An Introduction to Linux and Free/Open-Source Software

Kevin Weedon

[geek:1]

Join LUGOD this month for an introduction to the world of Linux and Free/Open-Source software!

This month's introductory talk is about the philosophy of the GNU/Linux operating system, and why more people are choosing it every day. Kevin will be touching on the ease of use, flexibility, security, and the control over the operating system that Linux provides, as well as what variants of Linux are available and how to choose the right one for your needs. There will be a question and answer session afterwards to help get you the answers you need to get started.
