Greeneville Linux Users Group, GLUG


Greeneville Linux Users Group, Greeneville TN

"Something that I think is imperative is to have regular meetings, not just a Facebook group..." - Duane Hatter

"Some other ideas- no fees, no dues. This should be free to all. The concept, at least in my mind, is that this is to be a group of people that gather together to share ideas and experiences.
'Helpfulness' is the general 'feel' I am wanting. This is NOT for people that thrash their pc's playing Facebook games and want free repair services; this is for those that use Linux and need help, have ideas, have questions, have experience to share..." - Duane Hatter

 "A Linux User Group or Linux Users' Group (LUG) or GNU/Linux User Group (GLUG) is a private, generally non-profit or not-for-profit organization that provides support and/or education for Linux users, particularly for inexperienced users. The term commonly refers to local groups that meet in person, but is also used to refer to online support groups..." -

"Linux was originally developed as a free operating system for personal computers based on the Intel x86 architecture, but has since been ported to more computer hardware platforms than any other operating system. Thanks to its dominance on smartphones, Android, which is built on top of the Linux kernel, has the largest installed base of all general-purpose operating systems. Linux, in its original form, is also the leading operating system on servers and other big iron systems such as mainframe computers and supercomputers..." -  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux

Computer Restoration

All Things New Computer Restoration & Repair


-Our ideology-


Some people need the latest 5th generation Intel Core i7 Quad Core processor, 16GB RAM, 4GB graphics card, and a 17.3" monitor...
And they have $2500 lying around to pay for it.

Most people don't fit in that category.

Most want a computer that works, plain and simple. Whether it's checking your email, posting on Facebook, or doing your homework for classes you're taking at Walter State, you just need it to work.

Processor, RAM, Graphics... it just needs to work.

I understand. I'm here to help.

I deal in previously owned computers. With a previously owned computer you don't have to sweat about scratches, bumps and dings; somebody else may have beat you to it.

If you are environmentally conscious, you understand how bad it is to buy something new every couple of years, just because it's new, and fill the waste dumps with your discarded treasures. So, you recycle... but how about "re-purposing"?

That's what we do here at All Things New Computer Restoration & Repair, we take computers that were previously owned by big companies and major corporations and restore them. These machines were designed for serious use, and originally carried a price tag of $1k - $2k or more... but since they were shipped off to be replaced by the latest and greatest, you can now own them for a tenth of their original price.

-our methodology-


Do you like Windows? Do you need Windows? Maybe, and probably not.

Microsoft, the makers of Windows have a purpose... it's not to keep you satisfied, to help you, or even make your life easier; their purpose is to make money for their shareholders.

Don't feel bad; most companies are that way.

But what if there was another way?

Your Windows computer shows you all kinds of advertisements when you cruise the internet. Some of those ads contain malicious scripts. When you play "games" online and on Facebook, you are actually installing "malware" onto your pc. This malware installs other programs, and next thing you know you're telling all your friends "you've been 'hacked'". You weren't hacked, you clicked on something and it installed something else...

There is not just another way, but there is a better way.

-What We Do-


Do you need a computer? We have them.

Do you already have a computer but it's running slow, have constant pop ups, or worse?

Does it not work at all?

I can help.

How about a fresh install of Windows with all Microsoft updates installed, power management tweaked with Battery Bar & Battery Care, latest Internet Explorer w/ adblocking, Google Chrome w/ adblocking, Antivirus, AntiMalware, Foxit pdf reader, WPS Office Suite, PhotoScape Photo Editor, eSword Bible Study?

Or, how about something other than Windows that is easier to maintain, doesn't get viruses, doesn't support the capitalist democracy regime, and costs less?

Or, how about you buy me a cup of coffee and I look at your hardware problem and give you a quote on the repair costs?
