[vox] Introducing A Book And Podcast For Newcomers To Linux [fwd]

Subject: Introducing A Book And Podcast For Newcomers To Linux
To: root@lugod.org, sys@lugod.org


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 

“Linux and Open Source bring the world closer by using software with 
Freedom and Choice.”
