GNU/Linux Users Free Software Group. GNUz FreeNix workshop 1st Weds nite monthly

Hi all, monthly notice, November 3 - GNU/Linux Users' workshop: 7.30pm-9.30pm in the South Learning Centre (SLC), through rear door of South Christchurch Library at 66 Colombo Street, Cashmere - held on the first Wednesday night monthly, Feb-Dec at https://my.christchurchcitylibraries.com/locations/SOUTH/ N.B. Covid-19 tracing app QR-code is at all council public facilities.

LiveCD/DVD/thumbdrive installs of freenix operating system distributions are used to demonstrate alternative desktop environments, in the SLC computer lab of i5, all-in-one, touchscreen PCs. 'Freenix' is Unix-derived Free and Open-Source Software (FOSS) esp. GNU/Linux & BSD.

Ubuntu-MATE is the Debian GNU/Linux variant we most display and Long Term Support releases like 20.04 are recommended, though rolling upgrades (like 21.04, April release) tend to run fastest with very latest kernel drivers and software incorporated. Both are up-to-date, secure, and will run well on a lot of ageing equipment to extend its life. See http://debian.org background and http://ubuntu-mate.org/download/ for these distros and http://distrowatch.com for a great many other strains to choose from. Portable devices welcome, esp. laptops, Android phones etc. Arduino and Raspberry Pi sessions too.

BYO distributions and any new tech you like; overhead projector / large screen - let us know if you have a presentation to offer.

Online event link remote connection is via https://meet.jit.si/freechan and sometimes https://bbb.nzoss.nz/b/rik-huz-nrm-vmu courtesy of NZOSS, our deprecated main link.
