New life for an older XP computer—convert it to Linux:

New life for an older XP computer—convert it to Linux:

SEMCO President Mike Bader will do a live demonstration showing the results you get when you install Linux Mint on an older XP machine. He will explain the Mint install process, update process, and how to get thousands of free software packages easily. You will see how Windows-like Mint is and all the available help and resources. Mike will also present many of the options available with Linux Mint.

Also: News, Questions and Answers.

Refreshments and Social Period after the meeting.

Door prizes.

We need to be cleaned up and out of the building at 4PM.

Please RSVP so we can have an accurate seating count.

      Mint is great for throwing at your grandkids to keep them off your system(s). I built one for gaming.

    I'm learning Linux now, at warp speed! There's a podcast on the Podnutz network that had REALLY brought me up to speed called Linux For The Rest Of Us.

    I expect to do it for Royal Oak Computer Club and maybe a group in Detroit. I might combine it with June 5th Reset The Net (free software)
