Very small Roundup this week, so there will be space for the CLT report and pics – thanks Marc for writing this up!
Review of Chemnitzer Linux Days 2018
As mentioned in a previous posting, we have been to CLT – now we’re back from Chemnitz and looking back on an amazing event.
We were there with four attendees at the booth, and we welcomed a lot of nice and friendly people, and had some interesting discussions. We brought back some insights from users from outside our channels: some of them reported rock stable updates and also installation of old hardware without any issues. This deserves a big thank-you to our packagers and QA, which are testing updates and isos also on very old hardware, which is honoured by the users.
However there is also some not-so-good news: we are not as well known in Germany as we would like to be. There are still a lot of people who know Ubuntu, RedHat, Fedora etc, some of them still know Mandriva from previous times, but the young people even did not know our ancestors. So what we can do to increase our degree of popularity?
Nevertheless we would like to thank the CLT team for this perfectly organised event (the exhibitors call it “Chemnitzer Catering Days (with Linux talks)”), the interesting talks and the opportunity to show our great distribution. See you next year…
