FLOSS Presentation

Scot Henderson made another great presentation at our weekly KLUG meeting.  The topic, FLOSS or Free Libre Open Source software was very interesting and informative.  We learned the difference between Free and non-free software in the GNU/Linux world.  Scot introduced us to vrms (virtual Richard M Stallman); https://scottlinux.com/2014/02/19/find-non-free-software-installed-on-your-debian-machine/ … an apt that will detect any non-free software on a Debian system.  Scot also demonstrated a little C programming using the editor, VIM – http://www.vim.org/
