    Pennsylvania Based Linux Group

    I already posted this before, but I got few responses, so I thought I would bring up this subject here.

    I have started a small organization called Wayfarer. What I hope to accomplish is to spread the word about free and open source software projects, like Ubuntu. It also will function sort of like a LUG as well. I am not asking for members or volunteers yet, but more advice and opinions of what I can accomplish.

    Thank you for any answers!

    One of the great initiatives we could learn from the other Pennsylvania teams is to configure older equipment with linux for people who cant afford computers.

    I am already on that. I am gathering old hardware, and converting all of them to Puppy (< 128mb), Debian (128>256), or Ubuntu/SUSE/Fedora (above 256).

    I am going to donate them at no cost. So far I have only gathered two machines though.

    Re: Pennsylvania Based Linux Group

    I do not have internet at home currently, so I will have to get in touch with my co-founder and see what we can organize. I will get back to you.

    By the way.. Other goals include:

    Creating distributable open source software for Windows to hand on CD/DVD.

    LUGs and casual "non-official" consulting.

    etc..

    What! That is like blasphemy . It sounds like you have good goals for an open source supporter. Anything I can lend I will.

    Re: Pennsylvania Based Linux Group

    Thank you, I have been cooking this up for a long time. My lack of internet at home is the real reason I am not taking it prime time. I have a proxy, my second in command who can aid me in that, however he is less full time open source than I am. Regardless, thank you for your support, and if you have any brainstorms feel free to contact me here.

    Sorry for the double post. I have made some beta artwork and a goals statement, and I would like to share them.

    This is probably a good time to point out that Canonical owns the Ubuntu trademark, so any artwork that uses it has to abide by their trademark policy:
