Welcome to Wiltshire Linux User Group. We serve to assist users of the Linux operating system, promote Linux, and provide a forum for the Linux community of this region. Whether you're a Linux newbie curious to know what all the fuss is about, or a seasoned expert running a consultancy, this group should hopefully be of interest to you.


Location: Swindon
Unfortunately, due to declining attendance the regular monthly meetings have been abandoned.

To anybody who wishes to contact us, please join the mailing list (see below) and leave an introductory message. If a face to face meeting is desired, to have a chat about Linux or perhaps see Linux running on a laptop, this can easily be arranged.

IRC Channel

We've got an IRC channel! If you've got a question or fancy a chat, log on to and join #wiltshire.
