"Nate Smith and I created The Connecticut Free Unix Group in late 1996. At the time, there were no Unix users' groups in the area, much less any dedicated to the free Unix variants. Thinking up the name was one of the most interesting parts of creating the group. Both Nate and myself were decidedly against calling it a LUG (Linux Users' Group) because we knew doing so would alienate BSD folk, and that was the absolute last thing we wanted to do, both being avid BSD fans ourselves. Nate has since moved to the west coast, but I am still flying the BSD flag whenever possible. Despite my best efforts, there is a constant and nagging slide in the group's focus... toward Linux."
