About the Speaker

Sales Manager, Mooney's Bay Computers

National Capital Freenet and Linux

Speaker: Brian Shouldice and John Selwyn

Brian Shouldice, John Selwyn and possibly others from NCF will join us to present a bit of background for those in OCLUG who are not aware of NCF. They will also tell us about their DSL offerings. To date the DSL installation instructions are mainly directed to Windows and Mac users, but NCF is hoping we can provide advice and input on how support for Linux can be provided within the framework of NCFs volunteer organization.
