Unix & Linux Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Linux, FreeBSD and other Un*x-like operating systems.. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am a second year undergraduate computer science student and I have to give a 1 hour presentation (interactive session) about Linux in general and Ubuntu in specific for first year students of my department. The audience is unlikely to be aware of power of Linux and it will be more or less an alien concept for them. I myself started using Linux an year ago when one of our seniors gave a similar presentation about it to us and so I want it to be a good and educating experience for them as well. The focus will be on Linux and not Ubuntu itself.

The following is my plan of the presentation. Please point out if I may have missed out anything important or worth mentioning. Plan

PS: It might not be the right place to ask such a question but I am myself not an expert in the field and need guidance from others to make it a presentation that will encourage them to use Linux. I shifted the question from askubuntu.com to here on advice of a user.

I suggest you to talk about the easy way to install some software. –  Sigur Sep 21 '12 at 1:32
That will be covered under basic commands :) –  Shagun Sep 21 '12 at 1:35
Hm. Do you have any specific questions? This site isn't really intended for "please review and give feedback" sort of requests –  tylerl Sep 21 '12 at 4:05
-1: The question in its current format is not a fit for this website. We cannot do the presentation for you, let alone review the few bullet points you have laid out. Try to give your own personal opinion on why you think "Linux is better" (whatever that means) based on your own experience. If you have more specific questions we'll gladly help. Also, cross-posting from askubuntu is discouraged. You can ask mods to move the question next time, but this time your question is really off topic. –  rahmu Sep 21 '12 at 8:00
