Purpose: create an Ubuntu Handout to describe to parents and youth the use of Ubuntu at Mission Beacon.
Scope: one page black and white handout to post and give out free copies at the parent computer (left of the front desk); also post near the computers with an electronic (linked) version eventually posted at http://www.missionbeacon.org/computers. This may become longer or provide more information (via the web page only) to cover everything in language that is helpful and not overwhelming to both parents and youth.
