The final event schedule for the 2014 SouthEast LinuxFest has been published.
See you there!
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!
Just registered a new channel on the Freenode IRC network for the group. Using your favorite IRC client connect to irc.freenode.net and join #roalug. Or on the web, visit http://webchat.freenode.net/
Planning to schedule a regular weekly chat to discuss how to get things organized for the group.
More to follow soon!
Coming in August 2014

Looking forward to summer and planning how to organize this users group. Preliminary thoughts:
Please post comments and suggestions!
Anyone else planning to go?
Don't like the default computer name given when you installed your Linux distro? You can rename it by editing two files: /etc/hosts and /etc/hostname
