For summer 2014, have decided to keep Roanoke Linux Users Group as an online community with this web site and scheduled sessions on IRC.

Starting June 25 at 9:00 pm, join in the #roalug IRC channel on irc.freenode.net

As the group develops some membership, can look into a meeting facility sometime this fall (open for suggestions).

Hope to see you on IRC!

Easy to use, Windows XP replacement for older PC hardware. Based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS with LInux Lite specific repository and software. They have an active user forum for tips and support. Looks like a very good candidate to try out!

Looking forward to summer and planning how to organize this users group. Preliminary thoughts:

  • Creating something over on Meetup.com - there are a few other technical groups in Roanoke, but not a Linux specific group
  • Already have a page over on Google+ - Would virtual meetings using Hangouts be of interest?
  • Possibly schedule regular meetings on IRC?

Please post comments and suggestions!
