PCS Chapter Meeting
Linux in your everyday life
On February 24th, 2022 at Noon, we will learn all about Linux has now become a fundamental part of our everyday global life. Maybe a few years ago – if you query the average Joe on the street (assuming they were not a geek) about Linux, you may have gotten the following response: “Yeah, like you know, isn’t some sort of thingy like, you know, an operating system. I heard of it, but don’t know it personally myself – that it is very difficult to use.” You might be astonished to know just how often you use Linux in your daily life.
This talk is aimed at sharing with our members and guest audience, numerous practical examples for each hour of the day, how Linux is perhaps a regular part of your life, maybe in the background, maybe in the foreground and yet you do not realize it.
No prior knowledge of computing or Linux is assumed or necessary. The talk will be fast paced and full of details.
