"The largest Linux user group in the Denver area and the oldest (six years), Colorado Linux Users and Enthusiasts (CLUE) has members from all walks of life, backgrounds and ages. Some 60-plus members strong, the group is currently involved with holding the first-ever Front Range Colorado Linux Info Quest (CLIQ) conference and exhibition, here in Denver on April 1."
"But its involvement in the Linux community extends far beyond a single, culminating event. On the second Tuesday of each month, CLUE members assemble to listen to KISS lectures, get involved in informal Q&A sessions, absorb knowledge from special lecturers, see old friends, meet new ones--even win door prizes. "I meet new people at every meeting," says CLUE President Lynn Danielson, "and I've made several friends throughout the local Linux community." The welcome feeling brings a wide variety of members into the fold."
"Danielson grew up in Fargo, N.D., near the the town Patrick Volkerding of Slackware fame put on the map--Moorhead, Minn. Danielson became interested in Linux in 1995. "I had some exposure to Sun operating system and wanted UNIX on my personal computer," Danielson said. Solaris x86 was selling for something like $800 at the time, so giving Linux a try became an easy decision."
