In this meeting we will have a discussion of what Linux is and some of the different Linux distributions.

If you have never used Linux or are just starting with Linux this is the meeting to attend. It will be the starting point for a series of hack nights where we will go over beginning command line Linux. Don’t know what a hack night is? We will cover that.

If you have friends/co-workers who are trying to learn Linux, bring them with you.

Would you like to ask them to bring their laptops and we would help them install Linux on them as a VM?
