On January 31, 1996 at 7:00 P.M. the Greater New Hampshire Linux User's Group,
Digital Equipment Corporation, the University of New Hampshire, the Northern
New England UNIX User's Group, and the Association of Computing Machinery are
proud to co-sponsor a talk by Linus Torvalds, the architect of the Linux
operating system. Admission to the talk is free.

The talk will be held in the Iddles Auditorium (L101) of Parsons Hall on the
University of New Hampshire campus in Durham, NH. In addition to the talk,
door prizes will be offered, and there will be computer systems running Linux,
demonstrating the capabilities of the operating system.

Linux is a freely distributed multi-tasking, multi-user, internet-ready
operating system that can either be copied over the Internet, or purchased
inexpensively off CD-ROMS. It runs on Intel-class machines and (lately) Alpha
processors. Ports to other systems are in progress. In addition to getting
the binaries for the operating system, compilers and networking code, the
sources are also freely available and distributable.

Members of each organization will be available to talk about their
relationship with Linux, and to invite people to join their organizations to
help promote the use of Linux, UNIX and computer systems in general.

Directions to the facility are below, and a campus map is available at
