Upgrading XP to Linux Part II - The Workshop

After the popularity of the previous talk and multiple requests from members, we will be running Part II of the XP to Linux event as a workshop on June the 2nd.

Tux - The Linux LogoThe basic order of things will be a quick introduction, plus answering a few members questions (which unfortunately we didn't have much time for last time). Followed by an informal workshop where people can bring their own machines and we will try to help with any problems or even do some full Linux installs.

I will also bring a selection of desktops running the latest versions of Linux Mint, Ubuntu, Xubuntu, etc for members to have a play with. Plus Mike will demoing some of the radio software available.

If you didn't manage to make it last time this isn't a problem, although if you do have time it might be worth taking a quick look at the presentation so you get to understand a bit of the background about linux.

See you there!
