The “Social” is a monthly gathering of computer users who participate in the Computer Activities Program at the Senior Center.  We welcome and encourage the attendance of new members.  The Social begins with a status report of the Computer Activities Program.  Then we open the floor for a question and answer session about all things computer and technology.  We occasionally demonstrate new computer gadgets and software or talk about technology making headline news.  Feel free to bring a bag lunch and we'll provide the coffee, tea and sweets.

*If you'd like to attend, please RSVP by calling Scott at (908) 788-1359.

All the essential applications like and office suite, browsers, email and media players come pre-installed and thousands more games and applications are available in the Ubuntu Software Center. With a built-in firewall and virus protection software, Ubuntu is one of the most secure operating systems around.” - Canonical LTD

 Install a software upgrade for an older desktop or laptop computer
 Run Ubuntu “Live” on your computer without disrupting your current OS
 Install Ubuntu along side your current OS (like having two computers)
 Replace your current OS for a fresh start (rather than buying new)
 No steep learning curve; easy to transition to Ubuntu from Windows or Mac

This TechTalk session will demonstrate, on-screen, the latest version on Ubuntu and answer any questions you have about using it.
