Welcome to another APCUG Wednesday Learning Linux Workshop. At this workshop, Orv Beach will continue our Desktop Dive and share all the specialties of his favorite Desktop Environment, KDE. Then we'll have our next installment of "Taming the Terminal,” also with Orv.

After those two presentations, the Linux team will continue with this month's theme, Backing Up Your Computer for World Backup Day. Drew King will be joining us to talk about another backing-up program called Duplicati (not Duplicity), a free backup software to store encrypted backups online for Linux (and Windows and macOS). Then John Kennedy will share another free and open-source file syncing program that he's learning to use, called FreeFileSync for Linux (and Windows and macOS).

Following these two presentations, we'll open up the mics for a Roundtable with questions about backing up data and hard drive images and attendees sharing what works best for their personal needs. The goal is to provide many options for Linux users to choose from, to create their own personalized backup plan. As Adam Drake said last week, the best backup plan is the one that works for you.
