The Caboteria / Tech Web / GnuLinuxIntro (09 May 2006, TobyCabot)
(see also GnuLinuxForTecsChange for a page that I wrote to lobby Tecschange to use GNU/Linux)

Take I

A few people, working under the aegis of TecsChange, gave an introductory course on the GNU/Linux operating system in March/April 2003. The course lasted 6 weeks.

  6. Party! Pot-luck hors d'oeuvres, non-alcoholic beer, interesting music and free-form chat about GNU/Linux April 9, 2003

Take II

A couple of people are planning to teach one evening about GNU/Linux on Monday, November 1 2004 as one part of a "Computer Essentials" course.

4 half-hours:

Everybody leaves with a windows cd with firefox and openoffice, a gnoppix cd to explore on their own time, and a 2-page flyer with the course data on it.

Take III

In the spring of 2006 we spent a few monday evenings installing Ubuntu Breezy and playing around with it. We used a variety of machines, mostly PIII's. The hardware detection was pretty good - one Compaq didn't have its soundcard configured correctly, and one Dell had too high a resolution set so there were staticky vertical "stripes" on the page.

Then we set out to figure out what people needed beyond the basic installation.
