LUGOD Handouts

Here are some handouts about Open Source software and Linux that we have, or will soon, pass out at meetings, exhibit booths, or give to local organizations for dispersal, like the Davis Public Library.

Current Flyers

(As of April 2008)

  • LUGOD Business Card (TIFF)
    Author: Bill Kendrick
    Date: July 2009
    Type: Business card

    A business card with brief details about LUGOD (purpose, and when our regular events are). Useful for handing out to people at conferences or around town or campus.

  • LUGOD Photo Flyer (PDF)
    Author: Bill Kendrick
    Date: August 2004
    Type: 11"x8.5" single-sided sheet

    This simple description of LUGOD, including many photos of the various kinds of events LUGOD holds, was printed for our booth at LinuxWorld Expo in August 2004.

  • Free Computer Software (PDF)

    Original: free-computer-software-trifold-2007-05.odt (OpenOffice.org Writer ODT)

    Based on the success of the "Open Source for Windows" handout, this was created for dispersal to 'average' computer users (e.g., for placement on the information kiosk at the Davis Public Library). It covers the basic concept of Open Source, describes some key companies and organizations which use it, and lists a number of software titles available for Linux, Windows (and, in some cases, Mac OS X).

    Date: April 2008

    Type: 8.5"x5.5" (2 on one 8.5"x11" sheet) single-sided sheet

    This lists a few titles of news articles about Linux and Open Source in education, to entice people to read the full articles, and more, via LUGOD's "Reasons to Avoid Microsoft" page.

    Date: April 2008

    This compares gratis and libre, and lists some freedoms that schools enjoy by using open source software.

  • What LUGOD Members Use Linux For (PDF)
    Author: Bill Kendrick
    Date: July 2005
    Type: 8.5"x11" single-sided sheet
    Original: what-lugod-members-use-linux-for-2005-07.sxw (OpenOffice.org Writer SXW)

    People who visit our hands-on demos often ask what kinds of things people use Linux for. A brief survey was held on our 'vox' mailing list, and this document was created to answer that question.

    Author: Bill Kendrick
    Date: March 2004
    Type: 8.5"x11" single-sided sheet

    First handed out at the March 2004 hands-on demo, this pamphlet contains some screenshots and descriptions of Open Source software which can run on Windows. (Source: TheOpenCD)

    Original: theopencd3.kwd (KWord)

    TheOpenCD 3.0 (which also acts as an Ubuntu LiveCD) was released in July 2005, so this document was created to briefly explain what Open Source is and describe the contents of the disc.
