Hamilton Linux User Group Proposal


Preamble

<HYPE ON>
The time has come for change. A time for people everywhere to throw off the shackles of old fashioned technology. A time for the tyranny of the past to end. Linux is a high end solution for solving real world problems. Nevertheless it is available free from the internet. It is now considered by many as a viable alternative and contender to Windows NT or 95.
