I've been preparing a presentation along similar lines, currently posted
for review at:


Note that I'd prefer this not be distributed/published yet as I'm still
working on it and have some art issues.

I'd welcome comments/feedback/suggestions.

The text and overall structure may be used freely w/o restrictions.
Ditto the master layout (if you like it).

It's large, ~50+ slides, 2MB+, and growing.  More something you'd pick
bits from to use than present in one sitting.

Knoppix and GNUWin II are highly recommended.  Knoppix for Kids is also
good, though dated (about a year old).

I've got a spool or more of Knoppixen to distribute shortly.

 What Part of "Gestalt" don't you understand?
    A few years ago you could buy a CD, knowing that it was a standard
    product... Now, you...find that you can play it in your hi-fi, but
    not in your car.  Next time, you're not going to make that mistake,
    you'll just log on to Kazaa and download an MP3.
