The Zentrifuge, our conference location this year, is build in an old factory that was used for the production of washing machines (centrifuge, get it?). The bridging between technology and art is an important concern for them and thus our conference, as a technology conference, tries to cross that bridge too. Of course we also follow our motto Have a lot of fun… in this endeavor and throw a little party into the mix as well. So here is our blend of social events at OSC11.

Yesterday, openSUSE 11.4 saw the light of day. This release introduced some awesome new features and this was noticed by Linux users on social media and the press around the world. Of course we’ve got a huge spike in visits but also the number of downloads has been enormous, almost twice as much as for the openSUSE 11.3 release! (more…)
openSUSE 11.4 is going to be released this Thursday (March 10th, 2011) and there is no better way to enjoy the new release than having fun with your fellow openSUSE Lizards! That’s why community members all over the world prepare launch parties. Launch parties are events around the release of a new openSUSE version, what kind of event is up to the organizers. But it’s usually about sharing knowledge with each other, get new people to know the distribution, the tools and the project and most important about having a lot of fun, celebrating our success! Interested? Here are a couple of parties to check out!
