 +===== Should you use Linux? =====
 +
 +**Linux** or, more properly GNU/Linux, is the operating system built on the kernel 
 +derived from the seminal work of Linus Torvalds combined with developments of Unix
 +tools from Gnu, or the Free Software Foundation. It is a family of **distributions**,
 +that is, implementations of this combination of software, with various combinations of
 +components such as window managers, desktop layouts, packaging tools and application
 +sets. Or see [[https://opensource.com/resources/linux|What is Linux?]]
 +
 +As this website is for Linux-Ottawa, otherwise known as the Ottawa Canada Linux Users
 +Group, we strongly support the use and promotion of Linux. However, that does not mean
 +it is for everyone, or for every purpose. Some of the [[reasons-linux|reasons to use Linux]]
 +are discussed on that link, along with some situations where Linux may not be the
 +best choice.
 +
 +===== Linux-Ottawa Mailing List =====
 +
 +In order to be placed on the list, you must send an email to: //listname//+subscribe@linux-ottawa.org. A handy link appears in this paragraph. Once you have done that, you will be sent an email (please allow sufficient time for it to arrive and check spam filters. Given modern greylisting and other filters, this may take more than 10 minutes) asking you to confirm your desire to be added to the list. Click the link and you will be sent to a web page where you have to confirm that you wish to be added to the list. [[linux+subscribe@linux-ottawa.org?subject=New%20Subscription|Subscribe]]
 +
 +Unsubscribing from the list is just as easy. Send an email to //listname//+unsubscribe@linux-ottawa.org. For your convenience, an unsubscribe link follows: [[linux+unsubscribe@linux-ottawa.org?subject=Please%20unsubscribe%20me|Unsubscribe]]
 +
 +The [[https://lists.linux-ottawa.org|list archive]] is also available
 +
 +**Note: This a relatively low volume list.**

 +This is a conversion of the pages from the old site. There may be a few oddities in the pages, a few of which look like messed up URLs. These will get cleaned up over time, however as the links all seem to work, they are lower priority.
