LUGOD Handouts


Here are some handouts about Open Source software and Linux that we have, or will soon, pass out at meetings, exhibit booths, or give to local organizations for dispersal, like the Davis Public Library.


Current Flyers, Brochures, and Other Printable Materials

(As of October 2018)

  • What Is Open-Source Software? (PDF)
    Author: Kevin Weedon
    Date: October 2018
    License: CC-BY-SA
    Type: 8.5" x 11" double-sided three-column trifold

    This trifold flyer explains what FOSS and Linux are, why people make the choice for free software, and who we (LUGOD) are.

  • Free Computer Software (PDF)
    Updated By: Tim Thatcher
    Last Updated: October 2018
    Original Author: Bill Kendrick
    Original Date: May 2007 (based on March 2004 version)
    Type: 8.5" x 11" double-sided three-column trifold

    Based on the success of the "Open Source for Windows" handout, this was created for dispersal to 'average' computer users (e.g., for placement on the information kiosk at the Davis Public Library). It covers the basic concept of Open Source, describes some key companies and organizations which use it, and lists a number of software titles available for Linux, Windows (and, in some cases, Mac OS X).
