Meeting Description

Date: August, 2008:
Open Source Software on the Desktop


You've heard and read the Linux hype, you may even be running Firefox, but what's the 4-1-1 on Linux and Open Source Software? Is it ready for the desktop? or the laptop? for Business? for Grandma?

This presentation will address those questions and more:

  • What is Open Source Software? What is Linux? and why should I care?
  • Are there any ready-to-use open source applications?
  • How can I make money if the software is free?... and more!

This presentation will be "only mildly technical" and audience questions and answers are welcome. Linux and open source applications will be demonstrated live.
