The Arizona Ubuntu Linux Local Community Team and the Phoenix Linux Users Group would like to help you get the most out of your computer. If you are tired of paying for an Operating System that gets slower as time goes by. If you are tired of an Operating System that gets Viruses, Trojan Horses, Spy Ware, and other Malware. If you want to get more life out of that old PC that just can't seem to keep up: we may have a FREE solution for you. Linux is a free, stable, and complete Operating System that doesn't have the issues that some of the most popular systems have.

Please RSVP if you are able to attend or need help with anything. This is an excellent opportunity to get involved with us and to have fun meeting other open sourcer's.
Keep checking back for more details as they become available.
Software Freedom Day is coming up again soon. PLUG and the AZ LoCo will be working together to do something to celebrate this. If you are interested at all in helping with this please let Scott Gwin know by emailing email@example.com and/or emailing Dennis Kibbe at firstname.lastname@example.org. More info can be found at:
http://softwarefreedomday.org/ . Info may be coming in the near future at the PLUG website: http://plug.phoenix.az.us/.
Software Freedom Day (SFD) is a worldwide celebration of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). Our goal in this celebration is to educate the worldwide public about of the benefits of using high quality FOSS in education, in government, at home, and in business -- in short, everywhere! The non-profit organization Software Freedom International coordinates SFD at a global level, providing support, giveaways and a point of collaboration, but volunteer teams around the world organize the local SFD events to impact their own communities.
The team meeting has been changed back to 2100 MST again due to the request of many team members and a vote taken in the meeting. Please join us - it's fun and it's your opportunity to voice your wants/needs/opinions about how this LoCo is run. It's also a fun way to get involved, to get acquainted, and to find out what is happening with this Ubuntu and this LoCo.
I am finally scheduled to go in front of the ubuntu Membership Board on Tuesday 6th at 13:00 AZ time in #ubuntu-meeting. It would be great if you would show your support by attending this meeting and showing me your support. You can help my chances of being granted membership on the first try by editing my wiki and adding an endorsement for membership. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/j.scott.gwin This will also show you a little about the process of getting yourself ready to apply for Ubuntu membership yourself.
