> Hi SF-LUG,
> I'm Marland Dunn and I love using the Linux graphical desktop and my
> mission in life is to bring awareness and help with the adaptation and
> acceleration of Linux on desktop computers worldwide. This is why I
> started a podcast and wrote a book on using Linux on a desktop
> computer for newcomers to Linux.
> Linux Desktop For Beginners is an introduction to Linux and Open
> Source Software written to give a quick, but thorough overview and
> understanding of the Linux desktop in the easiest possible fashion.”
> Linux on the Desktop (Linux Desktop For Beginners) Podcast is a
> podcast for people new to Linux that focuses exclusively on how to use
> Linux on a desktop computer. The Linux on the desktop Podcast only
> talks about how to use Linux on a desktop computer and not news and
> events. This is what makes Linux on the desktop Podcast different.
> My goal with Linux Desktop For Beginners and Linux on the Desktop
> Podcast is to help people new to Linux become comfortable and
> confident using Linux on a desktop computer by supplementing and
> complimenting each other.
> Linux Desktop For Beginners is available at www.lulu.com/content/504889
> Go to the Linux on the desktop Podcast web site at
> www.linuxonthedesktop.org to download the podcast episodes, read the
> show notes, join the Linux on the desktop Community Frappr Map and
> learn more.
> “Linux and Open Source bring the world closer by using software with
> Freedom and Choice.”
