Who is CLUE?

Colorado Linux Users & Enthusiasts (CLUE) is the Linux User's Group (LUG) for the Denver metro area. Our goal is simple: we advocate the GNU/Linux operating system. Our advocacy is achieved by social gatherings and dissemination of information about GNU/Linux, and other Free and Open Source software.

Participation in CLUE is free and open to everyone. We have regular meetings, and provide several mailing lists for discussions about Free and Open Source Software, and other topics of interest to Linux enthusiasts. Meetings are held in the Denver Tech. Center area on the second Tuesday of each month.

We regretfully announce that we have cancelled the membership program. It's been quite clear for quite a while that we were never going to fulfill the promise of benefits reserved for CLUE members, and it's about time we officially admitted that.

Whether you are new to Linux, a Linux expert, or just interested in Linux, please join us at our next meeting. If you cannot attend the monthly meetings, we also host Installfests, where CLUEbies gather to share knowledge about Linux installation and configuration. Finally, you can be involved in CLUE remotely by joining the CLUE email lists.

Speakers Needed: CLUE is seeking speakers to give presentations for our meetings. Topics may be anything related to Linux or other Free/Open-Source software. If you would like to make a presentation at one of our meetings, or know of someone who would, please contact Dave Anselmi.


An "Installfest" is a social gathering where folks interested in Linux share knowledge about Linux installation and configuration. Often, those new to or interested in Linux will bring their computers for installation assistance. Others have already installed Linux and wish to try out new configurations or software. Typically, the CLUE installfests last for most of a weekend day.

We try to alternate locations between the DeVry University Denver South Campus in the Denver Tech Center and DeVry Westminster near 120th and Huron. Please see our Installfest page for more information.
