Padraic

Galway Linux User Group (GLUG) is meeting in 091 Labs this Wednesday, March 7th, from 8pm and then heading to O’Connells pub on Eyre Square from 9pm.

They invite you to come and talk about all things Linux-related (and other things that aren’t too).

This month, some things spoken about will be state of graphical user interfaces in Linux (Unity vs Gnome vs KDE), “is Wayland better than X11?”, “why are these applications not pretty yet?!” and most importantly “Is this beer better than that beer? Let’s find out!”. Lots of discussion and testing will be needed.
