AppleUsers Spotlight FOSS Sampler Edition Cover

Welcome to this Sampler Edition of the AppleUsers Spotlight, which we have created especially for inclusion on the “Spotlight on FOSS” DVD which will be distributed by various Apple User Groups around the globe on Software Freedom Day — September 17, 2011.

Normally the Spotlight contains articles covering a wide range of topics relating to all Apple products. There are reviews of software for the Mac and iOS devices, plus lots of helpful hints and tips. For a bit of fun, we even have a regular column that features different recipes for the actual fruit!

For this Sampler Edition, we have scoured though all our back issues to find any articles we’ve published regarding Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) and bought them all together, along with a few other interesting articles, to give you an introduction to the style of our free, digital format, magazine.
