September 15th KLUG Meeting

091515_Klug_MeetingLast night Scott Henderson did in impromptu presentation of GNU (a recursive acronym for “GNU’s Not Unix.”) and GPL (General Public License) and the four freedoms of open source software:
The freedom to run the program as you wish, for any purpose.
The freedom to study how the program works, and adapt it to your needs. Access to the source code is a precondition for this.
The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor.
The freedom to improve the program, and release your improvements to the public, so that the whole community benefits.

May 5th Klug Meeting

We also held elections for our board and the results were: Lynden Kirk – President; Bill Lindemann – Secretary and Director; Paul Moreno – Treasurer and Director; Jerry Prevatte – Director.

Next week at the May 12th meeting we will have pizza and beverage and discuss the upcoming study group for the CompTIA Security+ exam, the May 14th combined meeting with the South West Michigan WordPress Meetup Group, and ideas for the future growth of KLUG. We will also have several workstations setup with a variety of Linux distributions for everyone to checkout, so invite a guest that might be interested in joining our group. Please RSVP on the “Meetings Page” so we can right size our pizza order!
