Gnome3 launch party @ Zürich report

Gnome3 launch party in Zürich, April 8th 2011

ETHZ building

A group of 20 people met in ETHZ F26.3 room Friday afternoon (3pm to 7pm). To assist the Gnome 3 Launch party. We were expecting more people, but a so sunny weather, and a Monday off in Zürich doesn’t help to keep people inside after a long winter. 🙂

Marcus Moeller showed us a deep overview of the whole Gnome 3 desktop, with the strength and weakness (non yet finished features or controversial ones).

Then there’s some talks about features, what will happen unity/ubuntu/gnome etc …

On my side I did a late presentation about what’s openSUSE project is, and its associated SUPER COOL tools like OBS and susestudio.
It was supposed to last 15 minutes long. I was asked only Tuesday night to do it! But in fact we spend more than half an hour demoing obs and susestudio. Really was cool to do.

A special thanks to Biju Gopi Thilaka for setting up that party.

Biju Gopi was kind enough to share his slides with us, so keep reading …


freebeer.ch version 2.0 : new taste, new packaging, same free license

Freebeer.ch version 2.0

visit freebeer.ch

Just a quick note about the new version (2.0) we had tasted Friday 1st April in Zürich.

No April fool, here, even if by car Zürich is one of the worst city to drive. Hopefully, I’ve a driver who don’t drink Alcohol. One hour and a half to join Zurich, and one hour to find the place, and park the car.

Anyway, we found the HUB place, and enjoyed the new version of swiss freebeer, in the company of around forty people.

The new receipt is absolutely right for my taste, and I can assure to German & Czech previous testers, it’s really better. And no, it’s not a pils malt based one. Afterall we have Geeko’s beer for that.

Pascal Mages & Roland Studer made a quick and nice presentation about the idea, the concept, and the open philosophy behind the bottle. (avertas.ch)

Then Daniel Reichlin, the brewer, made a presentation about his brewery located in Winterthur. (website). We appreciate especially the serious during QA tests. 🙂

Dabu Fantastic (Acoustic Set) website fill our ears, during the time Daniel fill ours glasses.

As always during this type of events, it’s cool to meet people, discuss about free/open world, our beloved distributions, etc

They publish some numbers, and it seems we drink (driver excluded) 80 Liters during the event.

ps: if someone near Delémont want to drink one, I’ve bring back some of them at home 🙂


Catherine Lippuner, who get some pictures, was kind enough to share some with us.
