LONG/ARTICLE FORMAT

(Phoenix, Arizona) -- Saturday, October 29, 2005

The Phoenix Linux User Group (PLUG) is holding their monthly Linux
Installfest
Saturday, October 29, from 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. at the University of
Advancing
Technology (UAT), 2625 W Baseline Tempe, just west of I-10. Free and open
to
the public. Bring your P.C. for free one-on-one help with installing
Linux.
The Linux Installfest also features demos to view Linux for those
considering
switching to Linux for home or business use, as well as Knoppix CD's to try
Linux at home without damaging your PC or files. While no RSVP is
required,
if you are considering attending, an e-mail to the event coordinator
stating
your specific interest would be greatly appreciated. Please e-mail
InstallFest@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx with "Installfest" in the subject line. The
PLUG Installfest is held at UAT on the last Saturday of every month.

Linux is a free Unix-type operating system originally created by Linus
Torvalds
with the assistance of developers around the world. Developed under the GNU
General Public License, the source code for Linux is freely available to
everyone. Apart from the fact that it's freely distributed, Linux's
functionality, adaptability, and robustness has made it the main
alternative
to proprietary Unix and Microsoft operating systems. IBM, Hewlett-Packard
and
other giants of the computing world have embraced Linux and support its
ongoing development. More than a decade after its initial release, Linux is
being utilized worldwide as a server platform primarily. Its use as a home
and office desktop operating system is also on the rise. Local computer
vendor and service provider Red Seven (http://www.redseven.biz/) provides
computer systems and IT services to the home user and small business.
National governments in countries such as China, India, Germany, Singapore,
Brazil, and many more are adopting Linux as their official operating
system in
both servers and desktops. Some governments are adopting economic policies
around a future boom in Linux.

The Phoenix Linux User Group is the local Linux user's group (LUG) for the
Phoenix area. Like any other computer user group, it is populated by
hobbyists and computer professionals, and provides a forum for discussion.
Unlike many other computer user groups, LUGs also provide the same
functions
as a "regional office" for IBM, Macintosh, Microsoft, or Sun; they have the
responsibility to train, support, and educate Linux users, coordinate Linux
consultants, advocate Linux as a computing solution, and serve as liaison
to
local news outlets. Because Linux is Free Software or Open Source
software,
LUGs are entirely volunteer based. PLUG holds several monthly meetings:
one
in the southwest Phoenix area, one in Glendale, one in Mesa, and one in
Tempe.
PLUG membership is free and anyone may join. PLUG also welcomes users and
fans of all Free Software and Open Source Software such as GNU and FreeBSD.
