What is Linux and Open Source?

What Support can I get?



As well as an OU student I am Publicity Officer for the Puppy Linux Foundation. I previously used Windows XP but found it a 'malware magnet' that was becoming an untenable waste of time and resources. To my astonishment, no support for Open Source was offered at the OU - so I decided to start my own - well the course I am doing is in 'Practical Thinking' . . .

This is a personal initiative by Ed Jason focusing on Puppy Linux
The current official Open University policy is to only fund and support closed sourced software from Microsoft
