(Citizen Star News) - 2014-08-08 - Another fascinating service organization spawned by Star Citizen's affiliate enabled organizations system: Linux Users Group (LUG).

Arising from the Unofficial Linux Thread on the RSI Forums, and formed even before Chris Roberts' intention to release Star Citizen on Linux, the Star Citizen LUG tracks Linux developments and supports people aiming to use linux for related projects.

Even if you don't plan to support Linux (which btw - I hope to, Ed.), you should know these people's work are incredibly important to Star Citizen and gaming's future. With Microsoft's Windows doing a terrible job of supporting gamers, important developers like Valve and Cloud Imperium games are looking to alternatives. Valve famously starting the Linux based SteamOS project.

These alternatives "encourage" Microsoft to do better, or lose their grip on gamers. So support these folks.
