Was this started before nylug?  Or what is the difference between
the two groups?  It's a good thing I didn't start NYCLE 
(NYC Linux Enthusiasts) a couple months ago, or we'd have had 3 groups!

In response to Felix,

LUNY was originally formed by a batch of Columbia engineers and met
privately.  With the recent explosion in interest in Linux, we decided to
make an open group.  Some knew us as NYLUG, and we also had reserved the
name NYLUG.COM in addition to LUNY to reflect our interest in promoting
enterprise and commercial usage as well.

Which group started first?  LUNY members have been meeting for some time,
but NYLUG grew out of LXNY, which has a long history as well.  The truth is
that it doesn't really matter.   LUNY and NYLUG are officially sister
organizations, and Jim and  I work closely together to make sure that this
cooperation is effective.  Remember that New York is a big place, and that
we want to make sure we serve both the midtown area and the booming Silicon
Alley region in addition to the universities and schools.

Jim Gleason and I are both out at Linux World chatting up the folks and will
be presenting together at the next LUNY meeting.  I look forward to seeing
you there.

Matt Hunt
LUNY President

Subject: [nylug-talk] Overview of Linux Groups

Well, there are a few million people here, and so multiple groups are almost
a requirement if we are to educate everyone and provide a forum for those
who are already familiar with Linux.

The four groups you listed, however, have different purposes.

www.luny.org and www.nylug.org are sister organizations in the city for
Linux.
lxny.org is a great organization, but is dedicated to free software, and not
Linux.
  This is a subtle but important distinction.  LXNY's philosophy would lead
to use of any open-source software regarldless of its current state, i.e.
favoring PostGRES over Oracle.  You can read about LUNY's philosophy at
http://www.luny.org/ResponsibleAdvocacy.html.
AnyNix is a Unix organization.

As you can see, the groups are distinct, except for LUNY and NYLUG, which
are sisters.  There is clearly a need for at least this many!  There is also
a group in Brooklyn but I don't have the information handy.  The rest of us
talk frequently.  I was just out for beers the other night with Jay, the
secretary of LXNY, for example, talking about ideas for their computers in
schools projects.

I hope this helps as an overview.  I look forward to all of us in the
community working together.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO vs IBM.
