The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, June 12.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

   The Return of BSD

   In the open source world, the word Linux is almost synonymous with
   Operating System. As of April 1999, 31.3% of the world's
   network-connected machines run Linux. Comparatively, 14.6% run BSD
   UNIX. Some of the world's largest web operations, such as Yahoo!, run
   BSD. The world's busiest FTP server, ftp.cdrom.com, uses BSD to
   transfer 1.4 TB of data per day. Even Microsoft's flagship Hotmail
   service used to run BSD. So what's the secret? Why isn't BSD more well

   This month, Roberto Urrea, Senior UNIX/NT Administrator with the
   University of Winnipeg's Technology Solutions Centre, will be talking
   about FreeBSD, about how it differs from Linux, and about running
   Linux programs on FreeBSD. FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD all include
   options to allow Linux binaries to run on these systems (at least for
   the Intel x86 architecture).

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30 PM on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

   Please note: For this month only, we will be meeting at the University
   of Winnipeg's Duckworth Centre, which is located on Spence Street,
   across from the rest of the U of W campus, between Portage Ave. and
   Ellice Ave. The meeting will be in room 3B03, on the 3rd floor of the
   Duckworth Centre, which should be easy to find from the Spence Street
   entrance. This campus map should help you find the way:


   Security personnel at the front of the main building at the U of W
   campus (Portage Avenue entrance) will be provided with information
   about this meeting, so you can always check with them if you're lost.
   There should be no parking problems after 5:30 PM.
