| MG: Don't you have to be an engineer to configure "open 
| source" programs, apps and modules?
| Bob Murphy: No. Linux, and Ubuntu in particular have 
| gotten much easier to install. For many systems, it is 
| as easy to install as Windows is, if you were to install 
| it yourself. You can of course buy computers from 
| vendors like system76 and Dell with Linux installed, if 
| you prefer not to get your hands dirty.
| Applications like OpenOffice and GIMP are as easy as 
| clicking on an icon, are typically included in Linux, 
| and on Windows, it's a matter of clicking an icon, and 
| installing like any other software.


Linux love in Atlanta

| If you think Ubuntu is a just-discovered African tribe, 
| mosey on over to Atlanta Linux Fest on Sept. 19.
| The day-long event at IBMâs Northside Parkway campus is 
| part geekfest, part coming out party for Atlantaâs 
| growing Linux community.



Preview: Ubuntu Experts At Atlanta Linux Fest

| Back in 2007, Canonical launched Ubuntu Live â a one-time conference hosted
| in Portland, Ore. Since that time Iâve been looking for another
| Ubuntu-centric conference where I can meet key sources from across the Ubuntu
| ecosystem. Fast forward to September 2009, and I think there might finally be
| a conference that fulfills my Ubuntu educational needs.
