Learning Linux – Getting started using Linux from the Windows users’ point of view
John Kennedy & Cal Esneault. This will be the first of a 3-part series specifically for Windows users who want to learn more about Linux while still using Windows. In part one of the series, Introducing Linux, we’ll begin with John sharing what software Windows users could/should be running to make the “slide” over to Linux easy. Then John will show the step-by-step process for downloading the Linux Mint ISO (installation file) and another program called Etcher (program to make live USBs) onto your Windows machine. John will finish up his portion of the workshop by taking you through creating a live USB with Mint on it. Next, Cal takes over and will show you the step-by-step process of getting your Windows computer to boot to the live USB so you can run the Linux Mint operating system without making ANY changes to your Windows operating system. Finally, Cal will finish this first session by giving you a tour of the live distro and what things you might need to check.

**The Zoom encrypted link email will be sent to you Tuesday, 9/20, after registration closes at 6:00 pm PT.
