Topic: GNU/Linux (A brief history, command-line usage, filesystem layout, and which distribution to choose)

Topic notes: It's "back to school" season, and that means we're doing our Linux beginner topic once again. This time, it's a brief history of GNU/Linux, including a small section on using the command-line and the filesystem layout. Different distributions will also be mentioned to give new users an idea of which one to choose, based on their needs.

TALUG provides free Linux and other free and open-source software distribution CDs free of charge. Please let us know in advance, and we can bring some media to the meeting for you. We also have a small library of books that guests and members may borrow. Books may be borrowed for a month at a time (until the next meeting) with a late fee of $1 per month for past-due books.

See you there!
