- This page is intended to be the Ubuntu GNU/Linux Local Community LOCO Libyan team page. This page should help distribute and increase the knowledge of GNU/Linux and open source software, and show how it is becoming a key player in the IT market for personal and professional use. Everyone is a key player in this LOCO team for the development of GNU/Linux in Libya, and to expand the use and assist in the migration to open source power. Our purpose as a team from now on is to market the abilities of Ubuntu as a powerful operating system and help people in migrating from other operating systems. We will conduct frequent trainings on how to use Linux, stressing its ease of use. We will also make installation festivals every six months following each new release.
