Linux

Techtalk discussed the open source operating system Linux and where you can go to learn more about it.

"The short answer is that as far as courses are concerned they are a little bit thin on the ground. There used to be a group called Ballarat Linux Users Group... there is also a group called Viclan which runs local area administration".

"Linux is a free open source operating system that is probably described as an alternative to Windows. It's free, you can download it and it runs on most PC's. Apple is excluded at this point in time but most PC's that run Windows will run Linux".

The history of Linux in China is chequered. Android is doing extremely well there, even if it tends to be varieties that are more or less independent from Google (no bad thing.) But on the desktop, GNU/Linux has had a pretty disastrous showing. That's strange, because you would think that the Chinese authorities would jump at the chance to adopt a free operating system that was independent of the US, and which could be inspected for NSA backdoors even before the current Snowden leaks showed why that would be a good idea.
