Activities

This iss our mailing list

We try to promote at the University about Linux and free and open source software.

The Itinery is here:http://www.softwarefreedomday.org/teams/europe/uk/abertay-dundee .

  • The most fascinating Fedora project that I have ever seen is the POSSE project:

http://teachingopensource.org/index.php/POSSE

Aims

  • To promote Fedora/CentOS/Scientific Linux/Redhat as a Desktop/Server/Enterprise solution to proprietary software.
  • To cultivate and promote the Linux Infrastructure within my country of Scotland.
  • To get actively involved in the POSSE project so that the aims and ideals can be implemented within Scotland and the United Kingdom.
