The Oshawa Linux User Group is dedicated to extending the use of Linux by helping members and others with Linux problems, installing Linux on other people's computers, discussing various Linux systems, trying new releases and examining the various Linux programs at our meetings.
We are associated with and work in co-operation with the Durham PC Users Club.
Our group meets in Oshawa Ontario on the first Thursday of the month at 7:30 P.M. For more information e-mail one of our contacts.
