Given recent discussions on this list, I thought this might be of interest
to at least the GT-affiliated people on here....

The Linux User's Group at Georgia Tech will be meeting for the first
time since it's reorganization on Monday, September 20th. The
meeting will be held at 6:30pm on the second floor of the Student
Center, on the couches in front of the food court (if that holds
everybody, otherwise we might have to move around ).
At this time we have three main goals for the group:
1) Provide support for Linux users on campus. This means of course
helping out on the newsgroup git.unix.linux, but also perhaps on
ICQ, and ultimately I hope to set up a CGI-based web form for
2) Hold installfests at least one and preferably 2 times per
semester. Anyone who is interested can bring in their machine,
we provide keyboards, mice, monitors, etc, and we help you install
Linux. Linux CDs will also be for sale cheap at these installfests.
3) Build a software package that is ultimately to be completely
compatible with the package the computer store sells to incoming
freshmen for Windows and Mac. We want as much of this package as
is practical to be free, open-source software.
At each meeting, we plan to have a presentation about some facet
of the Linux world that we hope will be beneficial to our members.
In fact, although I will be giving the first presentation, we hope that
other members will bring their own ideas and knowledge to the
rest of the group by conducting presentations of their own, or suggesting
topics for future presentations.
We encourage anyone to attend the meeting who is either interested in
learning how to use Linux, or just wants to learn more about what
Linux is. This also extends to *BSD, BeOS, Amiga, etc etc.
We hope to see you all there !
