Free Libre Open Source Software.  FLOSS is what I'm talking about.  


Free as in you can own most any kind of software for $0.  
Libre as in you are liberated from having to pay for software
Open Source as in you have access to the software code.
Software as in Operating Systems and Applications.

I will talk about FLOSS that exists, today in the form of Operating Systems and Applications  that I use and a few that I know other people use and therefore you might want to know about and potential use.

I will talk about using http://distrowatch.org to locate, download and monitor new releases of software. I will talk about categories of software, downloading ISO images and booting your computer with LiveCDVD to demo the software before installing it.

The introductory version of the above will cover a whole hour, if I move through it pretty quickly. More than likely some topics will not be covered fully because of limited time and for sure if anyone calls in I will allow them to focus my attention on their questions and personal situation

kmw@caltek.net is my contact info.
