This is the Ubuntu Washington Team page. All we are here to do is help you use Ubuntu Linux and its associated open-source applications via individual local teams. There are no dues or fees of any type and all services are provided free of charge. Individual local Washington State teams will help you start using Ubuntu including perhaps giving you all the software, installing it for you if need be, showing you how to use it and fixing it if it ever breaks (doubtful). 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. This is the Ubuntu Washington LoCo Team wiki page. We are here to promote and support the use of Ubuntu and FLOSS in the State of Washington. Have an idea for someone we should give Ubuntu CDs to? Know of an event we should be at? Need help getting Ubuntu installed? Have a problem with something Ubuntu-related, email our mailing list or post on our not-yet-live forum. Were all volunteers and happy to help out.

The best thing you can do is use Linux and help others do the same. Please consider teaching what you know at a local team near you. Also please help others use Linux! Get them the software they need and the help they require to get started.
