Linux by Example, publishes screencasts about the Linux operating system. Episodes are kept short - typically less than 5 minutes, never more than 10. The aim is to provide something in each episode that you can take away and use. The show is produced by Paul Bradley, who converted from Windows™ in 2008 and has been using Linux on the desktop ever since. His preferred distributions are Ubuntu Server to run his web business, Linux Mint for the family desktop machine, and Moblin on his Acer Aspire One.
The show is recorded & produced using the following free and open source software products :- Audacity, Gimp, Kdenlive, recordMyDesktop and Ubuntu.
