Passionate Ubuntu user teaches Ubuntu in 14-clips public video-meetings
With each and each day, new and new fresh users are adopting Ubuntu and, naturally, enjoy its polished interface, user-tested desktop behavior, speed, security and reliability.
As looking across the internets, one can observe how other people are attracted to Ubuntu, usually via blogs, forums, social media, friends, etc, essentially, through communication.
Millions and millions of users utilize Ubuntu, nevertheless, a small portion of the Ubuntu-passionate users are programmers, aspect that may sometimes generate statements like "Yes, I want to contribute to Ubuntu, but I am not a programmer. What can I do?".
As seen in the below clip, an Ubuntu-passionate user introduces newcomers to Linux (Ubuntu), utilizing Unity and the Ubuntu desktop components, such as the terminal, the Unity panel, the Dash, etc, step-by-step immersing the viewers into the desktop's overall usage.
A definitely interesting aspect of the mentioned learning-others approach is the used intelligent attitude, the presenter incorporates the Ubuntu desktop into a Linux metaphor, probably to strengthen the communication with the audience, due to the fact that, while using proprietary OSes for years, the viewers probably heard about Linux (yet not necessarily about Ubuntu).
