What is an OS, and why do we need one?

Most people are not aware that their computer has an OS, or they think Windows runs the computer.
But they don't realize that Windows is only the software that enables them to run their applications.

But is Windows the only choice for a personal computer?

Our John Moore will present some other options and the reasons that Windows might not be your best or only choice.

He is the leader of our every-other-month Linux & Makers workshop and is well versed in operating systems. See his blog at http://www.lions-wing.net for schedule and details.
