Did you know that the computers at the library all run Linux and free software? Check it out if you'll be pleasantly surprised that it's not much different than Windows. I had my Mom try it once and she didn't even realize she wasn't on a Windows PC. Want to learn more?
See the world of Linux and free software at the Software Freedom Day at the East Columbia branch Library.
Start Time: 10:00 AM
End Time: 5:00 PM
A global effort to teach the advantages of free software, Software Freedom Day will help you learn how it can work for you. Join the Maryland Ubuntu Loco Team, Howard County Library and others for fun and festivities. In addition to helping you install Ubuntu Linux (proudly used on many library PCs) to your PC, we will demonstrate and discuss free software. Some "gently used" computers will be available for sale ($50.00) for Ubuntu installation.
Please see www.ubuntu-maryland.org for more details.
