Boston Linux & UNIX was originally founded in 1994 as part of The Boston Computer Society. We meet on the third Wednesday of each month at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in Building E51.

About Boston Linux & Unix

Boston Linux & Unix (BLU) is a non-profit trade organization; our mission is to educate about and advocate for Open Source, Open Systems, and Free Software ("free speech" not "free beer"), such as Linux, Unix, and freely-redistributable software.

Membership in BLU is free, and our monthly user group meetings are open to the public. Information and announcements are posted on our web server as the primary information source; announcements are then further disseminated from there to other distribution channels such as our mailing lists.

Boston Linux & Unix began as The Boston Computer Society's Linux & Unix User Group; we've been meeting since 1994. Some of the other surviving ex-BCS groups include:


BLU is a member of BostonUserGroups Synoptek

We also thank MIT for the use of their facilities.
