I let two years go by thinking there was no interest. But when I
started up the groups, people turned up! The first Bracknell meet was
in the Oldies Cafe I help with (PC also) and I was so convinced no one
was going to turn up, I had ordered lunch to eat for something to do.
Then four people arrived! Choke. Gulp.

My suggestion is create a group!! Now! By all means copy my groups'
blerb etc.
I personally do not want to waste my time with Windows OS probs but if
peeps are using  FLOSS on Windows that is ok. But as you see my
group/s are Ubuntu centric.

I wrote an article in the national U3A news a while ago and invited
emails. I got 16 direct responses, I thought this was good. There was
the expected kerfuffle in letters after it too, and the Editor
eventually pulled the plug, as they do.

Go for it!
