About LUV

Linux Users of Victoria is one of Australia's largest GNU/Linux, free software and open source user groups. We conduct two regular events in Melbourne each month. On the first Tuesday of the month LUV runs technical lectures at 200 Victoria St. Carlton, close to Melbourne's CBD and at Infoxchange in Richmond on the third Saturday of the month, LUV run a hands on workshop, addressing the issues of the users who turn up. The workshops have a "beginners" level talk, whereas the technical lectures are for an "intermediate" and "advanced" audience.

LUV has four regional chapters in Ballarat, Geelong, Shepparton, and the La Trobe Valley. Many of our members also attend Melbourne Linux Users Group (MLUG).

We believe that software patents cause net harm to our members, the software industry and the community. We therefore support removing software from patentable subject matter.
