Welcome to NORLUG
NORLUG is the Northfield Linux Users Group in Northfield, Minnesota USA - serving the entire Northfield, Faribault, and Cannon Valley areas. We are a collection of computer enthusiasts, dedicated to GNU/Linux (a powerful, free, UNIX-like operating system), Free Software and Open Source Software, as well as other related topics. Our goals are advocacy, education, support and socializing. We were formed as a user group in December of 2001.
Although our group name embodies "Linux", which is our main area of focus, some of us also use other UNIX-like/Open Source operating systems. Please do feel welcome as a part of NORLUG if you use another UNIX-like/Open Source operating system besides Linux.
Formal meetings are held every first Tuesday of every month at 7:00 PM CST. The formal meetings are held at badbrain computers in Northfield. The address is 400 Washington St. Northfield MN 55057. Other informal meetings and workshops are announced on our Mailing List. We also host informal/social mid-month meetings at local pubs, or our homes. In addition, we hold other regular and semi-regular events and workshops. Meetings and membership are free, and open to the public.
If you are a new or prospective member, or have not attended one of our meetings yet, we suggest you join our mailing list. It's a great way to introduce yourself and get acquainted with the people in NORLUG.
