Carson City Linux Users Group

Please join the group to network with other GNU/Linux Users in the area. Membership is free as in beer, so there's no reason not to join. You'll get benefits like installation help, and just help in general. I may not know the answer but google knows everything, so finding an answer shouldn't be too difficult. And there's always the GNU/Linux forums where you can ask detailed questions, and usually get a fairly prompt reply.

Finally, an answer to the age old question, which is the best GNU/Linux distribution? DistroWatch.com has links to the most popular GNU/Linux Distributions. The top 20 reasons you should use GNU/Linux. The best way to choose a distribution is to download several distributions and try them via live dvd or usb. That way you can test your hardware for compatabiity with the distribution. and get to try the desktop environment to see if it appeals to you. Choosing a distribution is a very personal thing.

Good reading material for recent and potential GNU/Linux converts. What-is-Linux? and Linux is not Windows.

LinuxQuestions.org a popular GNU/Linux Forum, Linux.org another popular GNU/Linux Forum.

GNU/Linux security.

We will install GNU/Linux on your computer. Bring your computer to a meeting and we will install Ubuntu on it for you.

Carson City Linux Users Group will be meeting on the third Saturday of the month at the Carson City Public library from 10:00 Am to 12:00 PM. 900 North Roop St. Carson City, Nv. I will try to reserve the room early enough that we can get Collaboration Room #1 so we have a consistent place to meet. I doubt meetings will go until 12:00 PM, but it may be necessary if we are doing an install.

The October meeting of the Carson City Linux Users Group will be Saturday, October 21, from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM, at the Carson City Public Library. Upstairs in Meeting Room #1.

Meetings are free and open to the public.

To join or for more information, email me.

My choice of distribution. Debian testing.
