About Boston Linux & Unix
Boston Linux & Unix (BLU) is a non-profit trade organization; our mission is to educate about and advocate for Open Source, Open Systems, and Free Software ("free speech" not "free beer"), such as Linux, Unix, and freely-redistributable software.
Membership in BLU is free, and our monthly user group meetings are open to the public. Information and announcements are posted on our web server as the primary information source; announcements are then further disseminated from there to other distribution channels such as our mailing lists.
Boston Linux & Unix began as The Boston Computer Society's Linux & Unix User Group; we've been meeting since 1994. Some of the other surviving ex-BCS groups include:
- Boston Mac User Group (formerly BCS-Mac) :: http://www.bmac.org/
- Mac Tech Group (formerly BCS MacTech)
- PDA User Group
(formerly BCS Newton)
