Our Linux Discussion meets every Wednesday from 6 PM to 8 PM in the Turing classroom. [[1]] It is an informal meeting and is wide open to any ideas relating to using the various GNU-and-other-process/Linux-based operating systems. We are not limited to, but do enthusiastically encourage:

  • Sharing the latest software releases!
  • Installations
  • Hardware investigation
  • Configuration
  • Troubleshooting
  • Reviving old computers!

We started meeting weekly in mid-October, 2009 and have had a group develop who steadily attend. For other regular San Francisco Linux events see sf-lug.org (twice per month), balug.org (monthly) and OLPC-SF (monthly). Members of the Ubuntu team (for California), Fedora Ambassadors, and Partimus volunteers regularly attend.


Attendees run a variety of distributions:

Bringing your computer is strongly encouraged!

Believe it or not, Linux events also happen outside the city borders. For the adventuresome, two good lists of such far away events are available from wiki.ubuntu.com and linuxmafia.com.

This handy folding method to protect CDs has come in handy for some of us.
