BLUG: Links

Linux in Northern Ireland The Northern Ireland Open Source Community.

Over the years it has started to become noticeable how well established Linux and the open source philosophy has become in our community. It now even has it's own web site and bulletin board. Please note that this site is operated independantly by Avec Solutions, and as such should not be treated as a branch of BLUG.

Linux Distributions


An all-round great Redhat-based distribution. Boasts a high level of standards-compliance, an amazing package collection, support options, and lots of backing by big companies.

Debian GNU/Linux

Arguably the most complete not-for-profit Linux distribution. Debian features an excellent package management system, automatic updates, and great support.

'Linux People'


The brains behind the Englightenment Window Manager and efm, Rasterman gave BLUG a talk during 2000.
