Summary of the meeting last night:

After discussing lots of things that we might do (including putting on an
InstallFest) we decided initially to organise a series of four short
introductory Linux talks, one per week, aimed at Windows-literate people who
want to find out about Linux.  We provisionally scheduled them to start
during the week commencing 14th February.

Working titles are (1) What Linux is  (2) Installing Linux  (3) & (4)
Getting started/Things you can do with Linux/Dialling your ISP/Escaping from
Windows - equivalent applications.

12 people took part; 2 sent apologies.

There will be a follow-up meeting tomorrow (Thursday) at 8.30pm at Jesus
College (entrance on Turl Street) to thrash out the details - outline of the
content, format, venue, how to select speakers, how/where to advertise them,
follow-up etc.
