A discussion about some of the different Linux distributions
Derek Carter (aka goozbach)

We'll discuss the main families of Linux distros; benefits and downsides of each; and help you decide which is best for your needs. This presentation is mostly focused to new users of Linux, however veteran users will most likely find some little tip or trick.

Advanced topic:

Raspberry Pi
With Cheap Power Comes Great Possibilities
David Millians

The Raspberry Pi is a small and inexpensive computer the size of a deck of cards. It is the perfect device to learn and test Linux on, because changing distros can be done as simply as swapping flash cards. Learn some of the basic points of using a Pi, and see what it can do!
