"Beer, Bavaria, hiking and ... computing? Indeed, Linux users from all over the world are betting that these four ingredients can be combined successfully, and are setting out to prove it next week in the hills of Southern Germany."
"The Linuxbierwanderung (LBW), roughly translated as Linux beer hike, will bring together groups with similar interests from all over the world, with participants making the trek to Pottenstein, Germany from Russia, the San Francisco Bay Area, from Southern Ontario to Seattle. And these are just a few of the cities that have organized groups to go to the event."
"The grass-roots event was originally to be organized by employees of Linux distributor SuSE and others with the sponsorship of Linux distributors, including Red Hat. Now, however, the event has reverted to its open-source roots, with participants taking the responsibility for organizing the event."
