MISSION: To provide a Linux Users Group (LUG) dedicated to helping the new Linux user (the "newcomer") in the City of Hazelwood and the Greater St. Louis area.

GOALS: To provide a technically non-threating environment for new comers to Linux for asking questions, demonstrating applications and teaching Linux related topics. To promote use of free open source GNU/Linux computer network operating systems for PC desktops, workstations and servers. To help computer users evaluate, use and enjoy free non-commercial Internet capable Unix-like computer operating systems and applications.

PURPOSE: This group will be a Not For Profit, vendor-independent organization dedicated to promoting the Linux operating system. It will be oriented toward and geared to the needs of the new Linux user (the newcomer) by providing introductory level information and one on one assistance. It will provide a forum for exchanging information about systems, products, services and architectures related to Linux.

MEMBERSHIP: Show up, look, listen, learn, participate and you will be a member. All meetings are free and open to the public, we have no membership dues.

Whatever the newest user needs to know.

Our meetings will usually be held from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM ( Room reserved from 6:30 for setup ) on the 4th Tuesday of each month. We must be out of the building NLT 9:00 PM. Specific dates are listed below.

After a quick welcome, introduction and administrative announcements we have a Questions and Answer Period. Then we might have a short application demonstration or slide presentation to start. We may stay on that topic or go on to whatever topic the Linux Newcomers want. So, please join us at our next meeting or event for fun, knowledge and networking.

The next few Hazelwood LUG meetings will be:
