<h2><a name="usergroups">User groups</a></h2>

<p>The user groups, notably the Linux User Groups (LUGs), are a great
resource for both new and experienced users. New users benefit from the free
help and installation workshops. More experienced users can meet others with
similar interests and join in the more technical tutorials offered.</p>
