Linuxtag and Linuxnacht

The social event at Linuxtag was called Linuxnight and was thursday night. It was in a former transformer station in Kreuzberg and a really cool place to party at. At one wall they were showing running an endless slideshow of some photos from Linuxtag - including the above photo from Martin.

The place had two levels, the lower one with a small fountain and a coffee bar. The party was excellent, I was just a bit tired and left early.

Opposite of our booth was the IBM booth and they had a second life demo running.

At one time, some of us decided to visit the IBM guy at second life. But it was not that easy to go to there place, the "openSUSE kidd" first had to earn some money...

We had a lot of visitors on our both asking for openSUSE, SUSE Linux Enterprise and other Novell products. I'm glad that Joe, Ralf and Christoph were there to answer some of the Novell questions. There were quite some good talks and I've been glad to meet some people.

At friday afternoon I took part in the keysigning session - together with around one hundred folks. Checking identities was as usual some fun. Signing and sending off the signatures via email on saturday, I was suprised that I got quite some mails back as undelivered - I would have expected that people would check that the emails associated with their keys do actually work. So, if anybody did not get my signature, you might want to check that email delivery is working for you.

Linuxtag is over now - and was one of the larger Linux events that we took part in. 9600 visitors came to the exhibition and the talks - and some of them showed up in ours as well...
