The Open IT Lab at IT-oLogy led another successful Ubuntu workshop on Thursday, January 24.
The workshop was the fifth Ubuntu offering since the Lab opened and served as an introduction to Ubuntu from the desktop users perspective. Ubuntu Linux is a free and open alternative to Windows or Mac OS X, and the world’s third most popular home computer operating system.
Topics such as how to navigate the desktop, install and manage software and software updates, and take advantage of the features that Ubuntu offers the desktop user were covered by Jim Salter. He also discussed how to customize the UI look and feel, what multimedia support options exist, and more about the Linux file system.
As Ubuntu continues to grow in popularity the Open IT Lab will continue to offer workshops. The next offering will take place in April.
