We've got a WLUG meeting on the 14th of March
Location: WPI Student Center Mid Century Room (rm 331)
I've got a couple ideas for topics.
1. Snaps / flatpacks / appimage. These are entirely encapsulated
applications that'll run on a variety of linux distributions. My new laptop
runs snaps using snapd. This is just one of a bunch of new technologies for
distributing software without having it tied to the machines glibc and
2. Microsoft and its complicated relationship with the OSS community. Are
we moving towards a dystopian future of locked and signed bootloaders?
Where your only option is to run Windows 10 with the linux subsystem. Has
google essentially done the same thing with Chromebook's and ChromeOS and
If someone has a topic that they're dying to do, let me know.
As usual refreshments and snacks will be provided and afterwards we'll head
off for dinner to continue the conversation.
I am leery of the allegiances of any politician who refers to their
constituents as "consumers".
