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.
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.

Website working group
We will be planning modernisation and upgrading of the LUV website. This will include looking at what features are used and what technologies are suitable for the future.
There will also be the usual casual hands-on workshop, Linux installation, configuration and assistance and advice. Bring your laptop if you need help with a particular issue. This will now occur BEFORE the talks from 12:30 to 14:00. The talks will commence at 14:00 (2pm) so there is time for people to have lunch nearby.
