Welcome to South Mississippi Linux Users Group

SMLUG is a group of computer and technology enthusiasts that meets once a month to promote the free and open philosophy and to share ideas and knowledge. Linux is a free and open source operating system developed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL). The GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change all versions of a program and to make sure it remains free software for all its users. If you have an interest in learning Linux as a career, or just for personal use, attend the next meeting to find out what the group has to offer.

What's happening at the meetings?

For the meeting on August 21st the SMLUG will be holding open discussions on Linux, free, and open source related topics. Member's are encouraged to share topics and projects, if possible a short hands-on demo would be informative and welcomed. Our meetings are free and open to the  public.  The meetings are currently being held virtually for health and safety concerns, and will continue to be virtual until the pandemic situtuation can be resolved.  Until then, meetings can be attended at https://meet.jit.si/SMLUG.

A quick update on the status of returning to face-to-face meetings. I contacted the USM Library in Long Beach, MS about returning to our old meeting room and was told due to the COVID-19 numbers being on the rise once again we will not be able to meet on the campus until further notice. If the group is really itching to return to meeting in person, then we'll need to start searching for an alternate location.
