The December meeting of CINLUG, the Central Indiana Linux Users' Group, is
scheduled for 6:00PM on Wednesday,  December 2, 2015.  The meeting is being
held at the Glendale Mall branch of the Indianapolis-Marion County Public
Library (IMCPL) - 6101 N. Keystone Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46220.

Directions can be found at http://www.cinlug.org/about/directions/Glendale

Anyone is welcome to attend the meeting. Dan Langille will be giving a
presentation titled "FreeBSD: Not a Linux Distro." FreeBSD is a Unix-like
operation system used around the world by companies such as Sony, Verisign,
Apple and Juniper Networks. Many may not know of its roots or how it is not
even a Linux distro at all.  FreeBSD offers powerful innovations such as
ZFS, Jails and Dtrace but still makes it easy to use since it is a complete
operating system and not just the kernel. Get started today with this
friendly little Daemon. More information is available at

Dan Langille has been using FreeBSD since 1998 and almost immediately he
started documenting his experiences. This online journal eventually became
The FreeBSD Diary. Along the way, he founded a couple of conferences
(BSDCan, PGCon) and created a few other websites. He is very good at
describing the step-by-step procedures to perform a wide variety of tasks,
from changing your prompt to creating and maintaining jails.

Additionally, CINLUG will be having a pitch-in holiday party - please bring
a dish to share with fellow CINLUG attendees.

The meeting agenda includes:
