ITALIAN LINUX DAY 2006
In Italy, every year, one day is dedicated to celebrate the "Linux Day".
This year the date has been fixed on Saturday, 28th October, 2006 by the ILS (Italian Linux Society).
This public event is organized by all the Italian LUG (Linux User Group).
Every Italian LUG takes care to promote and to involve the community and people of the area they are located in (such as schools, media, associations and so on) in the use and knowledge of Linux and the Free software.
The Italian Linux Day is an official and important occasion to debate and to think over the Linux experiences in all Italy, too.
Furthermore, every LUG usually organizes meetings, conferences, papers and public shows of free software.
Please, have a look at the activity we will carry on during our LINUX DAY 2006 at GOLEM, Empoli, (Italy).
We will be very happy to meet you at our meeting !!!
