About SeaBUG

  Mailing List

SeaBUG is a users group for Open Source Unix based in Seattle, WA. Our primary emphasis is on BSD but enthusiasts of other Open Source Unix such as Linux are welcome.

The size of our group is about 100 members and growing.

SeaFUG was formed in early December, 1998 as a group for FreeBSD enthusiasts. In early 2003 the group was renamed to SeaBUG to widen the audience to other BSD enthusiasts in the Seattle area.

People interested in joining the group should start by joining the mailing list and introducing themselves (no lurkers please!). Next - come to one of our monthly meetups. Are you an advocate or posess some talents that might help our efforts? Let us know...volunteer opportunities will be forthcoming.
