Linux: It's Not Just for Geeks Anymore!

- Installation of Linux Itself
  - Ubuntu Variants
    - Kubuntu
    - Xubuntu / Lubuntu
    - Ubuntu-GNOME
- Setting up a Dev Environment
   - Installing Tools like Apache, PHP, Rails, RVM, Aptana
   - Configuring SSH and Git
- Tips and Tricks for the Terminal (tentatively)
- Dispelling Wine Myths
    - Wine actually isn't an emulator; it's a reimplementation of the WinAPI, thus yielding native performance
    - PlayOnLinux Vs CrossOver
 - Alternatives to popular proprietary software, Like Photoshop, 3DS Max, .NET, etc
- Video Card Driver Installation (recorded video, possibly?)
    - *I do not have a laptop that requires propreitary drivers, so I may need to do a video of installing the NVidia Drivers for my desktop
- The Linux Services
    - service service-name (start|stop|restart)

- Compilation of Source Code via gcc/g++

Again, all this stuff is subject to change, so I may not cover everything here, but I'd like to.
