What a coincidence, you live about 1 km from where I live!

Cool!
I don't know many Linux users here in Nijmegen. Do you?

I have been thinking for a while to join or start a Linux User Group (LUG) here in Nijmegen to exchange Linux knowledge & experiences and to promote Linux in general.
As there wasn't any Nijmegen LUG yet, I just created this LinkedIn Group: http://www.linkedin.com/groups?home=&gid=4475292
Although I use Arch(Bang) myself, I would like to keep it distribution independent...

Re: some Linux users in Nijmegen Holland

There is one Crunchbang user living in Nijmegen I met on the Crunchbang forums, Tunafish, that would like contact; I have a friend who is deep into Linux and tried to start a  little commercial Linux support and training company, with little success; and I know there are some students at the beta science part of the University that are into Linux.
For me personally it is rather hard to get away from home at many and unpredictable moments and therefore I didn't join groups that meet on a regular basis  the last years.
I think there certinly might be interest in such a user group here, but I wonder if I would find it inspiring myself.
If I look at what interests people at http://www.linuxweblogs.nl/ , mostly ubuntu stuff and a rather uncritical look at the whole Android development, I find I don't have much interests in common with these people.

Great! I discovered Archbang thanks to Crunchbang :-)
In 2007 I started with Ubuntu which I used until they came with the Unity GUI, which made me decide to switch to Debian last year.
For an old laptop I needed Debian with a lightweight GUI, so I found Crunchbang.

Some time ago I tried Arch. Although I liked it very much, I had some problems to install a GUI.
When I looked for Arch Linux + Openbox I discovered Archbang, which is since a couple of days running on my desktop PC that I use for my work.

Besides using Linux on my workstation, I am also interested in linux powered plug computers (I have a SheevaPlug).
And hopefully my Raspberry Pi will arrive soon ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raspberry_Pi )
