What is Linux?

Martin Lomas gave an introductory talk on Linux at last nights Nottingham LUG meet. What it Linux, why do people use it, the philosophy, the community were all covered. It was good to return to basics after a few recent more advanced talks. Overall it was a very worthwhile talk to attend and we had a few good surrounding discussions. I was relieved to hear that this is not the same talk Martin would give to his customers when teaching them about Linux. It did get rather evangelistic at times. (to put it mildly!)

I had the usual few pints at the Newshouse afterwards before missing the bus (as usual) and ended up walking home blathering about nonsense to Roger.
