Our Linux Discussion meets every Wednesday from 6 PM to 8 PM in the Turing classroom. [] 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
- Helping new users and converts
- Hardware investigation
- Reviving old computers and making them better with Linux and open-source software
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:
- Debian Squeeze
- Debian-derived (including Ubuntu & Mint)
- Fedora-derived (including CentOS & Red Hat Enterprise Linux)
- BSD-derived (including Darwin/MacOSX+ & Free/OpenBSD)
- Multi-booting with Mac and Windows or running Virtual Machines
Bringing your computer is strongly encouraged!
This handy folding method to protect CDs has come in handy for some of us.
