Waay, Marius, I'm afraid you'll have to introduce me to this stuff offline. No, I'm not stalking you. Not really.

This does not mean it's not a userfriendly video. I'll go into this some time when I've got the opportunity.

Excited to switch from Mac and PC to a linux based system, but I know very little about it. So that was a nice little introduction. Thanks!

You'll are doing a great job. Linux is said to be a non-user friendly OS. But the way u'll are showing the video and demonstrating and educating people, no one will ever say that say that Linux is non-user friendly, but they will say Linux is user-friendly os

aswell "community-friendly os".

These are amazing amazing videos. I still find it hard to believe it is free. You guys are my heroes. If only the rest of the world follows suit-the spirit of the ubuntu movement( yes it is a movement in my mind-not just a gnu/linux distribution) is what humanity is about.

ps. I will write a more lengthy review shortly.

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Lucas
