About LEG

LEG dates back to around 1996, before CLUG, and is probably the oldest Linux organisation in Africa. These days LEG is the branch of CLUG responsible for running the CLUG/LEG servers at UCT, providing FTP mirrors (primarily to UCT), and keeping a Freedom Toaster going.

LEG attempts to promote the use of Linux (and free software) at UCT, and provide the infrastructure to support it wherever possible. As a community organisation run by volunteers, we aim to provide the best support we can, and hope to supplement the Linux support that ICTS have recently declared that they will provide.
