The Linux Users' Group of Davis is a 501(c)(7) non-profit computer club serving the Sacramento region, consisting of hundreds of people who share an interested in the Linux® operating system, Free & Open Source software and other related topics — both technical and non-technical.

Our goals are to advocate the use of Linux and Open Source, to educate the community on these software alternatives, and to support and provide a social network for local Linux users.

LUGOD holds regular meetings twice a month. On the first Tuesday of each month, we hold a social gathering at a local restaurant or café, and on the third Monday of each month we meet at the Davis Public Library to listen to informative presentations by guest speakers. (Day, time and location subject to change!)

We also hold other events and workshops and maintain a number of active mailing lists (some with over 200 subscribers), an IRC channel for live chatting, and communities on social networks (Facebook and LinkedIn).

Our meetings, events and membership, are free and open to the general public. Join us!

* Why Use Linux? An Introduction to Linux and Free/Open-Source Software
Presented by
Kevin Weedon

Join LUGOD this month for an introduction to the world of Linux and Free/Open-Source software!

This month's introductory talk is about the philosophy of the GNU/Linux operating system, and why more people are choosing it every day. Kevin will be touching on the ease of use, flexibility, security, and the control over the operating system that Linux provides, as well as what variants of Linux are available and how to choose the right one for your needs. There will be a question and answer session afterwards to help get you the answers you need to get started.
