[ Thanks to abu-Khaled for this announcement. ]

Welcome to the Arab Linux User Group(ALUG)!
The First Linux User Group in the Arabic Language

Arab Linux User Group(ALUG) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting Linux in the Arab world. We intend to do this by educating people about Linux and helping people start using Linux by making it easily accessible and providing the initial assistance to get started with Linux.

The group includes engineers, corporate users, consultants, journalists and normal computer users as well. We engage in technical discussions as well as general discussion related to the growth of Linux, particularly in education and home use. The group is well spread out throughout the Arab world.

To achieve the objectives of ALUG, the growth of Linux User Groups in the Arab world is a must. ALUG helps in whatever way possible all the user groups in the Arab world -- whether they are associated with us or not. This includes but is not limited to helping in procuring the latest Linux software and technical help.

Technical support is always a need for new users of computers on Linux. ALUG provides support to all new users through the Discussion Board, a group of volunteers, who can provide installation support on site.

Install Fests and seminars are being planned for disseminating information about Linux.
