Hello everybody out there,

I am writing this post to link the FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) presentation which I gave in AOU (Arab Open University) during a free Linux course there, it has 40 slide covers the primary topics of FOSS and gives an entry point to GNU/Linux operating systems.

The presentation covers a three sessions (2 hours each, with total of 6 hours), and considered a very good introduction, anybody could use it and modify it (it has FDL license), I would like to thank Ahmed Mikawy (linuxawy) who made this great slide show, I actually corrected some mistakes, modified some stuff and add some additional slides, I hope everybody will like it and make use of it.

Please download it from this link:

Enjoy…
