What we're about

Now starting our 5th year, this group is for new and experienced users of GNU+Linux (Ubuntu, Debian, Mint, Fedora and other distributions), Unix, BSD and OS X (which has Unix under the hood).

Topics can range from upgrading older computers, building from scratch and new hardware platforms like the Raspberry Pi.

Casual users, hobbyists and seasoned professionals are all welcome to join a friendly and helpful environment to discuss and ask questions.

Thanks to a generous donation, ROALUG now has unlimited members again! Everyone is welcome to attend the meetings that are scheduled - joining the group on Meetup.com is not required.
