Sadly, you're right. Local chapter are not as active as back then.

If you're looking for Linux "gang",
Look for TRUNASUCI and his comrades. They're actively evangelizing Linux and general open source software.

By the way, he's not well lately. So maybe just look for his FB circle

Brother trunasuci suffered stroke attack a few months back i think. He is now recuperating at his hometown. People closer to him maybe can help verify this.

Would a community be better if it's distro based?

See, there are people here are wondering the same like me - what happen to the oldies.

Sebab tak pernah wujud lagi komuniti oss bawah satu bumbung sejak dlu..

yang wujud sejak dahulu ialah sekumpulan fanatik dalam sesuatu pilihan :
- mydebian
- ubuntu loco
- myBSD
- etc

which.. perkara ni normal. Klau peminat dah takde atau yang aktif tu dah tak aktif, maka senyaplah group tu dari segala aktiviti.. klu kena nasib, pupus terus.

Klu nak buat bengkel, buat je.. unix / like-unix users ni pun akan datang dengan sendiri nya.. Tengok lah kau target siapa, klu otai..payah la. klu student atau person yang ada interest tapi tak de cikgu... kelompok orang mcmni senang dapat.. terutama area bandar / univ

so, buat je! Nanti ada la yang minat.. kalau hambar, jgn gelabah.. rileks je. sasar kan kat tempat dan kelompok yang sesuai.. time pun penting, wat time cuti / weekend la biasa sesuai

Thanks bro! Will keep that in mind. Currently I'm just doing it live, cuz I don't have proper syllabus so I'll just do a small case study for now to see what's those newbs usually ask and see if I can do the same for students.

I know Haris, I used to work with him at Abyres. He's not there anymore ?

How is terunasuci now? Is he okay?

I'm reviving Arch and Red Hat families. The fire nation returns

I've been looking for one, but all almost dead. Lowyat forum is just among a few that still barely alive. I remember back then we used to have lot of activities, parties, gathering, launch whatever, so many mirrors and people willing to contribute with helping others, and we even have a couple of our own linux distro build from scratch.

I'm planning to make a simple mini linux bengkel to re-introduce back Linux to the public, so that people would aware there's more than JUST Windows out there. Trying to get rid of the fear feeling towards linux. I had GMI contacted me if I wanted to use their place, anyone can join for the sake of the community.
That being said, I also would like to know if anyone knows the community for Fedora, Redhat family for example that still active in Malaysia.

How about a Facebook group of Malaysia Linux user,regardlss of which distro and skill level,we start it there,and we'll definitely going further.

good idea to activate, many Linux users i think they just don't post here, perhaps community focusing on server OS is more relevant, i have a variant of freeBSD

Back in 10 years ago I received the Ubuntu CD from Canonical. It was a pain to make the OS running without any problems, sometimes the pulse audio doesn't work and sometimes the GUI crashed.. I have to look for solution on the internet to solve the bugs..

But I think since 16.04 LTS (or maybe earlier 12.04 LTS), everything is mature enough no need to solve any error. So less talking about OS side, but more tended towards internet side, eg. security & privacy.

Plus, new generations are more focus on mobile OS like Android & iOS.

So I think these two reasons lead to Linux topic colder than before on the end users side.
However..,:

It took 19 years, but Linux finally dominates an entire market
