Libre Las Vegas: GNU/Linux Free Software Users Group
Are you're tired of proprietary software like Windows, Mac OSX, and Adobe Photoshop?
Are you tired of Social Media companies stealing all your data and getting rich off you?
Are you tired of Big Brother spying on you?
Would you like better software for FREE with no strings attached?
Would you like the FREEDOM to do whatever you want with the software?
If you answered Yes to any of the above questions this group is for you!
Whether you're running GNU/Linux as your desktop operating system now or you're interested in learning how to do so, this Meetup is for you.
Our goal is to create an environment that's welcoming, fun, and educational.
The argument for FREE Software ("FREE" as in speech) software is stronger now than ever before with a new Data Breach, Big Brother Leaks or Censorship Take Down every day.
The internet runs on GNU/Linux, it has been wildly successful in the server market however most home users don't know anything about it.
Desktop GNU/Linux operating systems provide a rich end-user experience on par or better than commercial rivals in many respects. Not to mention they are FREE and safer to run than those proprietary spyware operating systems.
...Yet the uptake of using GNU/Linux as an end-user (desktop/laptop) operating system still lags behind.
This Meetup aims to end that by:
Creating a community of GNU/Linux on the desktop enthusiasts.
Providing a venue where GNU/Linux questions can get asked by users of all levels.
Fostering GNU/Linux on the desktop evangelism. Let's spread the word!
We welcome long time GNU/Linux enthusiasts as well as those who maybe have heard of GNU/Linux but aren't even sure what it is, and everyone in between.
Join us for our next meeting!

Come learn about Linux and see it in action. Ask question, get answers, learn something new. Bring your laptop if you want to install Linux. Make sure it's backed up and you don't mind wiping it out.
This is a casual no agenda meeting, come at anytime, leave at anytime. Bring your computer and share what you are working on and learn from others.
We also have a monthly meeting at the SynShop in Henderson and will have presentations on the 4th Monday of the Month.
We are also accepting donations of your old computer hardware to create a testing lab where people can come play with different linux distros and hack on the hardware.
