TUX Magazine and the ABC's of Desktop Linux

by Kevin Shockey

During the upcoming LinuxWorld Boston, TUX Magazine, Nicholas Petreley and I will present the The ABCs of Desktop Linux: Everything you Need to Start Using Linux Today. Nicholas is the Editor in Chief of Linux Journal, and ever since December 2005, I am the new Editor in Chief of TUX Magazine.

Our objective with this activity is to provide new Linux users an opportunity to see what Linux is all about. By providing high level demonstrations about Linux and Linux-based applications we hope to eliminate the fear, uncertainty, and doubt associated with a permanent switch to a Linux desktop. This free mini-seminar will run from April 4, 2006 through April 6, 2006; it will give participants a chance to meet Nicholas and myself and hear our stories about getting started with Linux.
