Florida Linux Users
What you glance at is the
Florida Linux Users website.
We are a Linux User Group(LUG) based in Gainesville, Florida, home of
the University of Florida, and
devoted to the spreading of knowledge and propaganda about the Linux operating
system. We strongly encourage anyone with an interest in Linux
(whether new or experienced) to come out to a meeting and see what we
have to offer.
Local Linux Links:
is a local Linux mailling list hosted by the University of Florida. To join
the list simply email LISTSERV@lists.ufl.edu the following information
in the body of the message: subscribe linux-l <your name
(In case it's not clear, there should be a space between linux-l and your
name. For example, if user Linus wanted to subscribe to the list, in the
body of the message he'd put, 'subscribe linux-l Linux' (without the quotes.)
The list server will then email a confirmation, once you've replied you're
on the list.
