"While, in all fairness, Linux users aren't known for being party-animals either, Linux users do enjoy sharing information at a social gathering, and they don't need Microsoft to tell them tell how to throw a party. Instead, they get together around the world at LUG (Linux User Group) meetings.

"Once upon a time user-groups, people who just got together because of their shared passion for computers, were everywhere. As PCs became as common as refrigerators most of these groups died out. In the case of Linux, though, they live on.

"Indeed, rather to my surprise, some of them have started creating regional trade-shows. Even as the traditional big vendor technology trade shows, like Comdex and PC Expo, fade from memory, Linux users have started creating their own home-brew shows."
