I think a great topic especially for the new students would be "Fast Track
to Linux" where you introduce the GNOME and KDE desktops and a few of your
favorite tools and utilities.
My most current thoughts are centered on Linux, its origins, the GPL,
WLUG/WPILA, and then segue into single CD demo distributions for folks who
want to "kick the tires", as it were, without fully committing their hard
drives to Linux.
One such single CD demo distribution is Knoppix, which does have KDE (and
GNOME?). Once Knoppix is running, many things could be demonstrated. If I
go with this idea, I'd want to have copies of the Knoppix CD available for
people to take home, and hopefully they would try it at their leisure.
How does that sound? Do people have additional ideas? Let's hear them! :-)
