TechSoup event: Alternative software and operating systems
- I hope you'll join us this week!
Announcing TechSoup's latest week-long online event:
ALTERNATIVE SOFTWARE AND OPERATING SYSTEMS
December 3rd-7th in TechSoup's Open Source Software and Alternative
Operating Systems forum: <http://www.techsoup.org/event_alt_os.cfm>
The hosts of this event, Greg Beuthin (CompuMentor's Technology
Consultant and TechSoup's Hardware guide), Joe Cancilla (TechSoup's
Content Developer and Open Source guide), and Michael Schrecker
(CompuMentor's Technology Consultant and Systems Administrator) will
discuss the alternatives we have to the Windows Operating System.
We will explore ideas such as:
* What are the benefits of using alternative software?
* Is it difficult to work within an alternative operating system?
* Should your organization go with a Macs, PCs, or both?
* Is Mac OS X appropriate for nonprofits? What is the future of Mac anyway?
* What is Linux and how do you get it?
* What options are there for Mac databases beyond Filemaker?
Though alternative software products don't get the attention they
deserve, they can often save money and may be a better match for your
organization. Join the discussion in the TechSoup Community:
