Some people have told me that they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen an angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100 mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

  • Sep 28 : Linux/Unix Society Meeting Opening Social  - 2:00 Smith 478

Welcome to the Linux/Unix Academic Society Website

Have you ever been curious about developing key technical skills that map to higher starting salaries? Come and join your fellow students in the Linux/Unix Whitney Society. You can develop skills, friends and further your network of professional associates. Improve your job market skills and accelerate your learning of key technologies. All students are welcome and invited!


"The Linux society is very active on campus and doing a lot of really cool things. Enhance your education and have some fun."

-R. Kent Jackson
Dean of Computer Information Technology, BYU-Idaho


Meetings are every other Thursday at 2:00 in Smith 478. See the Upcoming Events section for more information about what we will be discussing.


The society's goal is to help members perfect their skills in programming and operating systems by providing a forum to discuss computing topics and develop friendships. We believe in President Eyring's commission to become employees who do more with less , as we learn to use primarily open source software in our computing tasks.
