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?

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 public.

The meeting for March 2020 will be holding a LInux Install Fest for one of our new members. A Dell Optiplex GX620 Desktop will be donated to our newest member to get him on his way to learning Linux. The specs may not be the greatest, but it should be enough to provide him an opportunity to learn without the fear of breaking his existing hardware. Other members have stated a willingness to donate additional hardware and a tally will be taken before next meeting.
