  • This page is home to the Ubuntu Emirates LoCo team page. This page helps to give insight and distribute information regarding all Ubuntu related issues locally. We are here to show how this distribution of linux is a key player in the IT market for both personal and professional use. Everyone involved in the LoCo has equal opportunity towards the development of GNU/Linux in United Arab Emirates. You are an ambassador to help and assist in the migration towards open source technologies. Our goal as a team is to market the abilities of Ubuntu as a powerful operating system and help people integrate the technology and/or migrating from other operating systems and technologies into this one as a more advanced and beneficial advantage. We conduct frequent training on how to use Linux, showcasing its ease of use. We also organize installation festivals whenever possible.


  • Ubuntu You may also contact any of the admins: jarkas at gmail.com, omar at gmail.com for any help.
