Promoting Linux and Open Source Software Freedom in Atlanta Since 1994
Atlanta Linux Enthusiasts (ALE) is a diverse group of friendly people who enjoy the freedoms and benefits of GNU Linux Computing and Free Liberating Open Source Software technologies.

Thursday, Jan 11th will be:

“Linux Geek Gadgets Gone Gonzo:
The Nokia N800”

Enjoy an early ogling of the latest geek crack to hit the streets…
the Linux based Nokia N800 Internet Tablet. Announced just this
past Monday morning at CES, the Nokia N800 is the successor to
the popular linux based Nokia 770. Somehow, one happened to
magically appear in the hands of our presenter, Marc Torres.

The presentation will start with an overview of what makes this
internet tablet tick and how the 800 differs from its 770 predecessor.
Then Marc will demonstrate its always connected abilities and the
range of applications available.

Marc Torres is a co-founder of ALE and has been a minor contributing
member of the global Linux community since 1992. As a technologist
his background includes Network Management, Security, Large-scale
Systems Administration, Wireless and Mobility.
