About KLUG

The Knoxville Linux User Group was started in 1999 by students at the University of Tennessee. While it remains a student organization, the group is open to everyone. Currently, the only membership requirement is subscription to the mailing list.

The group is not actively meeting, nor does it have active officers. If you are interested in becoming an officer or presenting to the group use the mailing list to inform the group.


Linux is a Unix-like computer operating system originally developed as a free operating system for Intel x86-based personal computers.

The development of Linux is one of the most prominent examples of free and open source software collaboration. The underlying source code may be used, modified, and distributed by Anyone.

The defining component of Linux is the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on 5 October 1991 by Linus Torvalds.

Varients of Linux now run on a multitude of systems from personal computers (Ubuntu) to supercomputers to embedded systems (Android).
