What noBananas is saying about this Meetup Group

As an end user, my primary interest is meeting with other linux users who use linux on the desktop. I am also interested in trends in this area. Unlike NYLUG, NY GNU appears to be better targeted to my interests and skill level. While there is a wealth of good linux resources on the 'net, nothing can replace face to face interaction. Dialogue is key. I can get questions answered from experts and, by listening to conversations, pick up useful tips. My impression is that most attendees are established members of the group and many work in IT (sysAdmins, DBAs, developers, etc.) on linux. I think they have a wealth of experience and expertise to offer but also would demand, from me, very targeted questions (eg - I need to have done my homework first). I'm also interested in participating in the linux community.
