Who’s the Largest LUG in the World?

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.”
