A successful course on Linux for beginners
Saturday 16th December, HanoiLug volunteers LeRoy Duvall and Lê Xuân Thảo trained 13 Vietnamese participants to install Linux during a full day, at the CNF-AUF.
Ubuntu 6.06.1 LTS, Desktop edition, customized for Vietnam by JC André, has been used for demonstration during the Linux crash course. A Vietnamese translation of the Ubuntu Desktop Guide was given to the participants, as well as two CDs including the one cited for demonstration and Ubuntu 6.10 alternate CD.
Among the 13 participants, 4 had never used Linux and 9 had never tried to install Linux before the course. All but one have their own computer at home.
All successfully installed Ubuntu on the computers provided by CNF-AUF. After the course, all of them declared capable to install Linux by themselves and wanted to learn more about using Linux with computers.
