• Brian will teach you the methodology of installing Linux, the operating system from scratch.
• He will teach you how to rejuvenate any old laptop (pre-Windows 8, 8.1 or Windows 10). Older laptops.
• He will explain operating system theory: why we need operating systems, what they do and how to use them.
• Brian will explain partitioning, along with the tricks and traps of installing a new operating system.
