Notes from initial meeting 2006-01-06

General Mission

The power of Linux and open source is in all the choice, but for new users, the choice can be paralyzing. Our goal should be to provide real world examples for at least one of the many choices in each area.

Suggested Content Headings

1. sending/receiving email

2. web browsing

3. configuring the desktop / other preferences

4. basic document creation--text docs, spreadsheets, presentations

5. some slightly more advanced things like watching video clips, listening to music, keeping a checkbook

6. Fun stuff in general maybe geneology, brainstroming software, Folding@Home / SETI@Home stuff
