Have you heard about Linux? Linux is a computer operating system
that's developed by hundreds of groups from all around the world, and
it's a viable alternative to corporate-controlled systems like
Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X.
Linux is "free software". That's "free as in freedom"; you can
install free software on as many computers as you want, use it for any
purpose you want, and give copies away to your friends. Free software
is as much a social movement as it is a technology movement.
We give linux classes on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month from
6:30 - 8:00 pm, at the South End Technology Center , 359 Columbus
Ave, Boston, MA, about a block away from the Back Bay T station.
Our next class is Tuesday, September 2nd, and we're planning a
number-crunching workshop with Libre Office Calc. Libre Office is
free software for writing documents, creating spreadsheets, and
putting together presentations (similar to Microsoft Office). Libre
Office is cross-platform; it runs on Mac and Windows, as well as
Hope to see you Tuesday night.
