Join us on the 16th as we wrap up our series on Learning Linux from the Windows 10 User’s Point of View. Last month, we talked about the software that comes by default with your Linux distro. This month, Cal will speak to us about getting additional programs/apps. He will also review the new ways programs are getting packaged.

Orv will look deeper into the Linux Control Panel or Settings Menu to see what other settings Linux users might have that Windows users don’t. With Linux, different distros might have more or fewer settings from which to choose. He will be sharing the KDE settings menu, which probably has the most, for those that like to customize.

We sometimes hear that people moving to Linux have problems with their printers, so John will talk briefly about that. If there’s time, our last presentation will be on Ventoy, another option for running a live distro off a USB thumb drive. However, this option allows you to have multiple distros on just one drive.

We hope that during our Open Mic/Q&A, we get to hear from some current Windows 10 users who have given Linux a try either from a live distro or installed it on an older piece of hardware.

Please let me know if you have any questions,
