[News] GNU/Linux Has LoLiTa

Hash: SHA1

Meet LoLiTa - the Linux user's group of French Polynesia

,----[ Quote ]
| Finally, one little Linux-related anecdote from French Polynesia. It seems 
| that your DistroWatch maintainer was not the only Linux-using visitor 
| enchanted by these paradise islands. Gwenolé Beauchesne, a Mandriva developer 
| currently responsible for Core Labs unit, (re-)visited the territory in 2006. 
| The result? Those of you who used the distribution in that year might 
| remember that version 2007 had come with a brand new Mandriva theme 
| called "Ia Orana" (or "hello" in Tahitian) and it included a set of superb 
| photos that formed a part of one of the screensavers included in the 
| distribution. A great way to pause and reflect on a pleasant vacation once 
| life returns to normal!

Lovable LUGgable: support your Linux user group

,----[ Quote ]
| It’s true: LUGs aren’t the same. Linux isn’t brand spanking new anymore. 
| There’s no need for meetings which merely introduce the technology over and 
| over. This doesn’t mean LUGs aren’t relevant, but merely they have evolved.

| Efforts to promote Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) have gathered 
| momentum in the country, mainly due to emergence of "Linux User Groups" 
| (LUGs) and recognition by academics and government.
