LXNY  Meeting Announcement,   Saturday July 29, 1995.

Linux Users of New York City Region


Bring your computer to the next meeting of the Linux users of NYC and the
developers of the hot new release of Red Hat Commercial Linux will help you
install Linux on your machine.

This meeting is being hosted by Red Hat Software out of their Westport
Connecticut offices (don't ask us how a bunch of techno-hillbillies from
North Carolina have an office in Connecticut - come along and find out :).
So put your computer in the trunk and come out for a day in Connecticut.

Besides the opportunity to have the -very- latest versions of Linux
installed on your computer, here's the chance to ask a couple of the leading
Linux developers of software for the commercial market what the
opportunities are for your skills or product on Linux.

So bring your computer, or even your laptop if you have an ethernet card or
a built-in CD (but not parallel port CD), and go home with the finest Linux
installation possible.

To avoid disappointment we need you to register if you intend to come with a
computer.  We will attempt to load Linux on all registered computers brought
to the event.  No guarantees of course, there are still too many unsupported
pieces of pc hardware out there.  To maximize your chances of a successful
installation check out the latest Linux compatibility listing on Sunsite
before coming.
Registration is not required (but still appreciated) if you are not bringing
a computer.
Register by sending email to:

with your name(s) and description of your system.  
Also: when you expect to arrive.

Westport is less than one hour by car from Manhattan, and about two hours
from the Boston MA area.  You can get here by car (we are just off I95 at
exit 17) or by train from Grand Central Station.  We'll arrange to collect
you from the train station if you take the train.
