Linux Brochure Project (LBP)--Linux Advocacy & Publicity #2

Your organization may be interested in the Linux Brochure Project
hosted on
SourceForge. This project was developed because the Victoria Linux
User Group (VLUG) wanted to produce their brochure using open source
tools rather than proprietary ones.  We registered it at SourceForge
so that any Linux LUG and other advocacy groups could use the software
to produce their own brochure. This project has been written up by LWN
(http://lwn.net/Articles/51938/).

See below for project details.

Barbara Irwin
Publicity Coordinator, VLUG
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Linux Brochure Project (LBP) is GPLed data and software which is
used to document key Linux information in a standard-size brochure
(two sides of a
single letter-sized or A4 sheet of paper that is Z-folded into the six
mini-pages of the brochure).

Four key features of this project make it an excellent advocacy and
publicity tool for LUGS and Linux organizations: 1) the project data
and software are GPLed; 2) all software tools used to build the LBP
brochures are open source; 3) the brochure can be customized to fit
individual requirements of LUGs and other Linux organizations; and 4)
the software produces an attractive brochure.

Currently there are two versions of the brochure -- a "Linus" version,
which
features famous quotes from Linus and a VLUG version, which has been
adopted
as the Victoria Linux Users Group official brochure. We encourage
contributions of customized versions of the LBP brochure so ultimately
there will be a suite of brochures from around the world.  Looking
forward to receiving your version!  :-)

The first stable version, 1.0.0, was released on October 5, 2003.
Version 1.1.0 was released on October 11, 2003 to provide the option
of printing the brochure on A4 size paper. This new feature will allow
the wider global Linux community full access to this project as well.

Linux, Linux, Linux
Hi, Interested in trying Linux? Well you came to comp.os.linux.advocacy for some reason, and you probably won't stay long. Here's a list of Linux distributions to choose from. Ubuntu http://www.ubuntu.com Newbie friendly and good support forums. SuSE http://www.novell.com/linux Pay for some support if you're not opposed to spending a little money. Fedora Core http://fedoraproject.org If you're more comfortable with your computer, try this one out. If you get frustrated, don't give up so easy. There is a wealth of information online for whichever distro you choose....

My Linux is not your Linux
To the denizens of comp.os.linux.advocacy! So many people demonstrate in this newsgroup that they know only a Linux of Hatred and Greed, of paranoia, and of a selfish sense of entitlement. They seem always to be behaving like monkeys in reaction to human dissenters, throwing feces at one another and beating their chests pretending to know something. My Linux is not that Linux. My Linux is the Linux of Love, of sharing, friendship, community. It is a uniquely human Linux and not one for monkeys. When I speak with fellow Linux users in real life (i.e. not in the monkeyhouse of COLA) they remind me of myself: practical, freedom-loving, anti-corporate. Here in COLA however they remind me of monkeys or spoiled brats or worse, corporate sysadmins. My Linux is not your Linux. It is the human Linux that acknowledges that Linux involves human work to create, that although it is free you are not entitled to it, that although it is created in large part by volunteers, they deserve to be paid for their gifts with at least gratitude. And that monkeys and self-entitled brats and sysadmins never thank anyone. yarmfelder@yahoo.com writes: > To the denizens of comp.os.linux.advocacy!

I have Linux! I have Linux!
Ok, after two days of trying to get Windos 1900 installed and working , I sat down an hour ago and installed Linux. In an hour. Smirk. Ok, I will be honest. I did have some problems, but I believe they were of my own ignorance. 0) I started with trying to install Suse. However, I couldn't get it to install. Why? Because I didn't read the menu. There is a startup menu and the first entry is boot to harddisk. I thought that was the thing to do so I did it about 4 times. Then I gave up. However, I went back to it and subsequently realized that I should have chosen the 2nd men...
