The CLUE Linux Centre
In 1999, the CLUE Linux Centre was opened on Eastern Avenue in Toronto's harbour district. First of its kind in the world, it was a place where user groups could hold meetings, and a permanent demoistration area allowed people to demonstrate running Linux systems to the public.
Here's how writer Gene Wilburn described it:
If you're a serious Linux user in Canada, you should be aware of the Canadian Linux Users' Exchange (CLUE). The goal of CLUE is to promote the use of Linux in Canada and to provide services to Canadian Linux users. Part of its mandate is to support the efforts of local user groups and to "coordinate events, corporate sponsorships, and publicity at a national level".
Here is a photo from Linux Weekly News at Comdex Canada in 1999, of a poster about the Centre.
If you have any information or stories about the CLUE Centre, we'd love to hear from you.
