Who's the Largest LUG in the World?

Jan 30, 1999, 10:34 (6 Talkback[s])

Thanks to Ian Kluft for this link.

"There are two groups who have competing claims to be the largest LUG (Linux User Group) in the world. They are the Silicon Valley Linux User Group (SVLUG) in San Jose (Silicon Valley), California and the Skåne Sjælland Linux User Group (SSLUG), which spans across Sweden and Denmark."

"SSLUG makes the largest claim, with 2200 members. SSLUG makes this claim based on the number of subscribers on its e-mail list.

"SSLUG is a conglomeration of the local Linux User Groups in Denmark and part of Sweden."

"SVLUG's membership of almost 1000 comes from counting the subscribers to its mail lists. It is like most LUGs in that it primarily covers a contiguous metropolitan area. Or in this case it's a fraction of a large metropolitan area, in the southern portion of the San Francisco Bay Area."

Complete editorial.
