On 16 November 2002 the Pontevedra Linux Users Group, Grupo de Amigos Linux de Pontevedra «GALPon», was formed in Vigo, a city in the province of Pontevedra, in Galicia in North West Spain; its obective was:
To promote the use of GNU/Linux and Free Software in general, while offering a meeting point for all enthusiasts for this software.Today, 10 years later, to commemorate that day, we are releasing the latest version of our 'distro' GALPon MiniNo v_2.0 aka Ártabros and we are launching this new website which we hope will be more user friendly than the earlier one based on DokuWiki, which we will keep running to enable continuing access to some tips that we picked up through it.
It is our hope that this latest version of GALPon MiniNo will be useful and we look forward to your continuing support and your suggestions for further enhancements..
