Birth of Marakkanamglug

Welcome to Marakkanam gnu/linux user group.


We are happy to announce that ,we have started Gnu/Linux user group at marakkanam on 8th December 2013.


The birth of MGLUG..


Marakkanam is a coastal town well connected to state capital chennai and nearby union territory of puducherry by east coast road ,there are so many villages around marakkanam ,the main thing is it has well population of computer science and ITES students in and villages around marakkanam.


Luckily most of them having their own laptop computer given by the tamilnadu government in free laptop scheme, the special thing in that is free tamilnadu government laptop computer had a indian linux os BOSS.


Unluckily they forgot to create any awareness and guidance to use them effectively to develop their carrier.


Almost all of the students shows  more eager and enthusiasm to learn new things in computer and programming ,waiting for a new opportunity to unleash their freedom of innovative ideas.


So we decided to launch MGLUG and spread the  scent  of   FOSS (Free Open Source Software) and Linux around marakkanam.


The main agenda of MGLUG  is to Spreading computer literacy through various media and Creating awareness and educating the society at large about  GNU/Linux Operating System and Free Software.


“what ever we learn ,which are taken from the society we are living now ,its our duty to give it back to the society again”.



The Responsibilities of MLUG people would be like:

sharing Linux  Knowledge,

Mail support for linux installations and troubleshooting,

Seminars to schools and colleges,

Monthly Meetings,

spreading the freedom,

promoting students to do Open Source projects etc.



I am sathish , the co-ordinator of MGLUG ,  thanks to  my guru’s  for teaching  me the true freedom of FOSS and Linux.
