"I don't want to be rude, but could somebody tell me what happened at the openSUSE Conference last week?

"In case you missed it, and many seem to have, the second annual conference took place in Nürnberg, Germany on Oct. 20-23. The conference, which had the theme "Collaboration across Borders," seemed almost completely non-existent in the US tech media. Most of the coverage I could find was in the German trade press. Hardly any beyond that.
