I wanted to send this meeting announcement out early for a change. :-)
Our next WLUG meeting will actually be a joint meeting with WLUG and the
Worcester County IEEE Computer Society. We'll hold the meeting in Olin Hall
room 107 (we've been there before) since it seats more people.
We're anticipating a larger than normal turnout for this meeting due to the
showing of the documentary entitled "Revolution OS" (on DVD!). This
documentary runs for 1 hour and 25 minutes. No expertise in Linux is
required to understand this documentary.
Revolution OS tells the inside story of the hackers who rebelled against the
proprietary software model and Microsoft to create GNU/Linux and the Open
Source movement. This documentary features interviews with Linus Torvalds,
Richard Stallman, Bruce Perens, Eric Raymond, Brian Behlendorf, Michael
Tiemann, Larry Augustin, Frank Hecker, and Rob Malda.
I've just purchased a few items for the raffle which should arrive prior to
the meeting date. The items for raffle are:
o a copy of the Revolution OS DVD
o a Revolution OS tee shirt
o a Revolution OS coffee mug
o a Revolution OS poster (11"x7")
As always, light refreshments will be served at the meeting. After the
meeting, we'll adjourn to the Boynton Restaurant for pizza and beer, and all
are invited to attend.
