                           THE PHILADELPHIA AREA
                             LINUX USERS GROUP 
   The May PLUG meeting topic is "Creative Chaos, Why the Linux world
   works."  PLUG will be the first to hear about the paper Eric Raymond
   will be presenting in Barvia at the end of May.  

   Why is Linux world not flying apart in confusion?  Eric's development
   of fetchmail has been a deliberate test of some surprising theories
   about software engineering.   

   His analysis of the "cathedral" model of FSF and its imitators versus
   the "bazaar" model of the Linux world led to "Linus's Law" which
   pertains to "Given enough beta testers, all bugs are shallow".

   WHERE: Cyberloft Cafe, 1525 Walnut Street, 2nd floor 215-564-4380.

   WHEN: Wednesday, May 7, 1997, 7-9PM COST: NONE
   PLUG, Philadelphia Linux User's Group meets on the first Wednesday of
   each month.
   Many thanks to Mostafa Eldefrawy ( for providing
   the space and for staying open an hour later than usual once per month
   for us!

Hope to see you there,
Chuck Peters
