The digital union <http://digitalunion.osu.edu/> is hosting an 
introduction to Ubuntu, aimed at people looking to switch to an open 
source operating system. This would be a great opportunity, if they're 
ok with it, for us as a club to reach out and help spread some IT staff 
spread the word about open source software. OIT doesn't often support 
Linux operating systems, so I feel like we should commend it and help 
them in spreading the philosophy.

 From the registration page: /"*Ubuntu: An Operating System for 
Everyone* ... Considering open source alternatives to commercially 
licensed software? Ubuntu is a simple, stable, and free operating system 
designed to be usable by anyone, from average computer users to 
community organizations and businesses. Join the Digital Union in the 
Office of the Chief Information Officer to gain hands-on experience with 
this operating system. We will also discuss benefits of going open 
source, as well as view and discuss video interviews of leaders in local 
organizations that have successfully implemented Ubuntu as a powerful, 
cost-effective alternative to proprietary operating systems./"

The workshop will be held May 18th from 3:30 until 4:30 pm. 
Unfortunately, I like many of our most active members, have a certain 
programming class at that particular time, so I can't make it.
