As part of the International Software Freedom Day on Saturday 17th
September, the Herefordshire Linux & Open Source Users Group (HLUG)
will be holding a free public event at All Saints Church, High Street,
Hereford from 10 am ? 4 pm. We'd like to invite you along, and ask for
your help in publicizing the event by including it in your newsletters
and lists of forthcoming events etc.

HLUG has lots of free software discs to give away at the event and
there will be a friendly team of expert volunteers answering questions
and running demonstrations.

As part of this event, HLUG is working with local schools & colleges
on a pioneering project to help bring the real educational and
financial benefits of Open Source software to education.

Open Source software is free to use, with no license fees. It is high
quality, stable and used by companies including Google, Twitter,
Facebook and NASA, as well as behind the scenes in android phones,
cashpoints, set-top boxes and in-flight entertainment systems. Open
Source applications such as WordPress, Firefox and Libre Office are
used by millions of people around the world in corporate, educational
and home environments. Implementation of proven free software such as
this can save an organization significant sums of money over
purchasing traditional proprietary software.
