The Greater Seattle Linux Users Group is a local organization of people in the Seattle Metropolitan area that wish to collaborate on subjects pertaining to Linux and Open Source Software in general. Monthly meetings since 1994 and an active mailing list help to make this possible.

GSLUG is a Linux Users Group, which means it's mainly comprised of people who use Linux on a day-to-day basis for work and fun, and it is also the premier place for people to come and learn more about Linux and Open Source Software, whether you've never used Linux before, or if you're a seasoned kernel developer, GSLUG is an excellent place to meet new people, learn things you never knew before, and share great ideas.

What is Linux and Free Software?

GNU Linux is a free operating system developed by a worldwide community of volunteers that runs most any computer and is free to use, dissect, modify, and redistribute.
