Well, this seems kind of right up my alley this week. I finally read a tech book cover-to-cover, "Linux Made Easy". The theme of the book was, if you could do it in Windows and Mac, you could do just as easily, without being a geek, with Linux, Xandros in this case. The software the book featured was OpenOffice, CrossOverOffice, a bunch of Games, watching DVDs, encrypted or not, making mp3s, The GIMP, Audacity...And all the software you can get from the Xandros Network, for free. Edit even broached shell scripting and a site that has a bunch of tutorials on how to do it. When is the next meeting? I'll bring the book.

Yeah, I was thinking about the same thing. CompUSA with CDs of free
software and the Mac store as well. I think flyers explaining things
would be good too. I also considered the fact that people might not be
trusting of it, but with a good sales pitch people I think will
understand quickly what we are trying to do. I was thinking along the
lines of Boalt law schools idea.
Any suggestions for Software out the that has builds for Windows and
Mac? I was alos thinking of having either Knoppix CDs, Ubuntu CDs, or both.
