Description: 

Linux is so hard. Wait! No, it's not: ask anyone with an Android phone. With the sun having set on Windows XP and the fleet of older computers that most libraries have in abundance, it's time to rethink the advantages and disadvantages of having Linux-based public facing PCs. Join us for a panel discussion with vendors and librarians who have made the switch and consider your options for getting more value from your existing PC stock and Chromebooks, saying goodbye to expensive licenses and never again worrying about slow machines, viruses, trojan horses and other malware.
