Hi, I like to have some advice of you.

I`m a Linux user for about 6 years now, the company I work for have asked me if I would like it to share my Linux knowledge. I great oner for me ;-)
The reason why I do this is because I find Linux so great but a lot of my colleagues always tell me they haven`t time for it, also they have the excuse that they find it to complicated. Time to change that.

So I created a presentation and after that I send invitations to all our IT-Specialists with the message "You want to Discover Linux?". I was very amazed when my manager told me, that more then 70 people had responded that they would like to know more about Linux.

Now I want the participants to do a case, but I can`t think of anything that is a easy and give a result that give some interests in Linux. One thing I`m going to demonstrate is a Ubuntu Linux Terminal Server, this is very interesting for our Citrix Specilists / VDI. But for our support-engineer colleagues it would be nice that they can do some practice on there level.

If you have some thoughts about it then let me know. And for the beginners please respond also and say what you would like to do or what your interests / questions about Linux are.

If you're talking about general admin, maybe demonstrate some interesting things with cron jobs, perl scripts, etc...?
