A new venue for the LUG and our first meeting kicked everything off great.
The room at Telford College was decent size, a projector that could be linked too (a whiteboard if you have the drivers!). There is even reasonable sound system as well. We had access from 7 to 9pm.
13 people came along to see Jons talk – some returnees – welcome back! Jons talk introducing Ubuntu went down really well, it began with a live boot, then install (brave man!) also installing typical things that a user would need to have following a newly setup Ubuntu computer – like Flash. Them Jon did a walk through the capabilities of ubuntu. This had full attention and plenty of questions asked.
We began to run out of time and some of the questions seem to naturally lead onto a second talk – like describing use of the terminal. Jon has said he’ll do another talk later in 2012 for follow-up this one.
Thanks Jon, a fine start – lets hope 2012 follows on as well as this.
