We are beginning to form the new BerkeleyLUG group. It may or may not end up as an extension of the BerkeleyTIP (Talk / Installfest / Potluck) meetings that have been going on for the last few months. We will at least be in cooperation.
I hope this group has an emphasis on creating a desktop Linux support base and promoting the growth of the desktop user base in Berkeley and beyond. Ideas involve a public awareness campaign, podcasts, videos and installfests.
Look back in the next several weeks for more information about our first events and about the organizational structure.
In the meantime, please sign up for a forum account to discuss the future, and sign up for our announcement mailing list.
