BerkeleyLUG is having its second meeting this Sunday (May 31) at Bobby
G's Pizzeria in Berkeley California at Noon until 3:00pm. This is a new
user group focused primarily on the uses/development/promotion of
desktop Linux. Obviously there is significant overlap with Ubuntu-CA's
mission; so, I hope interested parties will drop by.
