The Greek openSUSE community in collaboration with other communities, university Linux teams and LUGs invites you to come and celebrate the brand new release of openSUSE 12.1. Release parties are organized in many Greek cities! If you’re near a city where a party is organized do not hesitate to meet us, attend an Install Fest or a presentation about openSUSE 12.1, drink lots of beers, talk with us and have fun!

We expect to meet you at one of the parties, as well as help you organize one in your town! Good company, beer and goodwill are the key ingredients of a successful Release party!
