The Linux Presentation Day is organized by many volunteers from local Linux user groups, from companies, schools and “hacker spaces” (technicians’ clubs). Attendance is free of charge and without any obligation.
With Linux against the theft of your data
For some years now it has been possible to observe a most remarkable trend in the field of computers, smart phones and tablets: the installed operating systems care less and less about the needs and requirements of the users, but more and more about those of the manufacturers.
The users’ data is collected more or less covertly, analyzed and resold, and what can be brought about by the resulting personalized profiles, has been known at least since Cambridge Analytica. Furthermore reports about “voice assistants” constantly listening in, and about back doors deliberately built into software and hardware, are increasingly heard, while users are coerced into buying new machines by forced software upgrades.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Thanks to the free operating system Linux, there is an alternative.
Surely you have already heard about Linux!
Linux is a free computer operating system and an alternative to Windows or MacOSX. Linux is also the system on which all Android smart phones are based.
Free? It’s free mainly because it’s not developped and marketed by a single company. It’s rather developped collectively by many thousand volunteers around the world, which makes it free from hidden back doors, free from impertinent licences and free from annoying advertisements.
Sounds interesting, doesn’t it?
That’s what we think, too. And that’s why there is the Linux Presentation Day!
