Please enjoy the Ubuntu Washington Team page facilitated by Chuck West. contact 360-292-7777 or chuck@olylug.org for additional information. All we are here to do is help you use Ubuntu Linux and it's associated Open-Source applications. There are no dues or fees of any type and all services are provided free of charge. Please also see the general Linux discussion on the Olympia Linux Users Group forum at http://olylug.org. We will do whatever it takes to help you start using Ubuntu including giving you all the software, installing it for you, showing you how to use it and fixing it if it ever breaks. We don't know how to make it easier to help you start using what we think is the finest computer operating system available at any price. <<Include(WashingtonTeam/Includes/Header)>>

The best thing you can do is use Linux and help others do the same. Please consider teaching what you know at the our Olympia Free School meetings. Also please bring people to the meetings!
