Jacksonville Linux Users Group

Jacksonville Linux Users' Group (JaxLUG)

The Jacksonville Linux Users' Group or JaxLUG is a diverse assembly of Linux users (beginners, casual desktop users, system administrators, developers, and IT professionals) that have a passion for supporting Linux and Free Open Source Software (FOSS) and live in or around Jacksonville, Florida metropolitan area. The JaxLUG, originally started by Daniel Stringfield in 1996, is led by Officers, who are elected annually.

To get to know us and become a member of the JaxLUG, please join our Mailing List and attend our Monthly Meetings. We also have a IRC channel #jaxlug @ for real time access to JaxLUG members.

The JaxLUG meets every 3rd Wednesday of the month. The meeting begins with social intermingling at 6:30PM and presentations start at 7:00 PM.
