"Its diverse and vibrant community distinguishes Linux from
other operating systems. One such manifestation is the Linux User
Group, or LUG. A group of users in the same geographical region get
together in a LUG to discuss everyone's favorite OS, and to educate
others about the virtues and challenges posed by Linux."
"From personal experience, I found that the development of LUGs
is one of the best aspects of the Linux community. Without a LUG, I
would have difficullty learning new things about Linux. Without a
LUG, I wouldn't have snagged my first Linux job. Most important,
without a LUG I might not have found people nearby who share my
interest in Linux."
"My local LUG, the Vancouver Linux User Group (VanLUG), has been
a boon to the local Linux community. VanLUG has been around since
1995 as a mailing list, and has had formal meetings since 1998. One
of the larger LUGs, VanLUG has over 1,000 registered members, and
the monthly meetings attract up to 200."
