Ottawa Canada Linux Users Group was founded in March, 1997. Its membership is diverse, ranging from people without computer knowledge to proverbial gurus. OCLUG was created to help promote Linux in the Ottawa area. We maintain several mailing lists, to help accomplish this goal and to provide technical support. OCLUG holds monthly general meetings.
In celebration and promotion of this event, OCLUG (and possibly other local groups) will meet and greet the public at Umi Café. We will have an installfest and demonstrations of free and open source software, distribute CDs and brochures, and discuss what software freedom means and why it is important. See OCLUG wiki for more event details.
