1. Software Freedom Day
Published Blog entry by Raul Suarez
[ http://kwlug.org/node/684 ]

Yesterday I was fortunate to participate in the Software Freedom Day
organized by the working centre in Kitchener.
There I had the opportunity to give three presentations.
I'm posting them here in case anyone is interested in looking at them,
modifying or using them at other events.
What are we celebrating
In this presentation I walked through some of the current rights and
freedoms regarding digital content. The ones we currently have and give
for granted as well as some of the existing artificial barriers to
enjoy
those rights.
Don't be afraid of the command line
The main purpose of this presentation is to make users feel more
comfortable reading and understanding commands provided by other people
as well as using the command line more effectivelly.
Linux for Windows users
This presentation shows some of the core differences between Windows
and Linux which, when not well understood, become "annoyances" and
entry
barriers for adoption.
This presentation is not meant to bash Windows in any way or to glorify
Linux, but an (hopefully) objective and practical comparison.
