I've got no idea what a LoCo team is. What exactly are they?

Outside the US, they seem to be mostly called LUG=Linux User Group.
I don't know if there is a difference between LUG and LoCo.

I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel sea,
Her beauty and her terror,
the wide brown land for me. :popcorn:

I don't know if there is a difference between LUG and LoCo.A Linux User Group is for any distribution of Linux, while LoCo teams are for Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Xubuntu only, though I'm sure they'd be welcoming to users of other distros as well.

Yeah, that's right, that's what I love about this country here in down under :-D

Thanks everyone for your responses everyone, it helped a lot. I was initially hesitant about posting this in Absolute Beginner Talk, but I got over it, knowing full that despite my year and a bit with Ubuntu, I've still got a LOT to learn. By the way, I've joined this (https://launchpad.net/%7Eubuntu-au) LoCo :-D. That poem actually gave me the idea :-)

I thought the poem referred to Ubuntu (brown color themes)! :lolflag:

LOL, the poem refers to Australia, KIAaze. The author of it, Dorthea Mackellar wrote it while she was in the UK, homesick for Australia :-)

Ok, this is WAY off the original topic, but thanks again everyone :-D
