Hello there! Let me introduce myself, I am Luis Lastra and I am an IT engineer from Chile. As a Linux and FLOSS fan, I have been participating in some Chilean events talking about Linux, applications and programming languages.
After two year using openSuse with excellent results I have decided together with a group of friends to create a LUG in our Region, and then we realize that there's no other openSUSE LUG in our Country.
This is our LUG : http://es.opensuse.org/LUG/South_America/Chile
It's called LUGOS Chile (Local User Group Open Suse Chile).
I know, we're a few people.... but we are going to grow up!! We realize that there are other users without any LUG in this lists... and we're going to invite them to participate.
And Here is the big question:
Can we make a Launch Party in our Region? It would be interesting; we work in diferents Universities and Institutes in this region and we can talk with users along Chile and ask them to join us to spread the openSuse project. There are a lot of people interested in use Linux as Operating System but they are waiting to make their own decision, and we wouldlike to help them.
There's a lot of stuff that we would like to do, as developing solutions using openSUSE and, obviuosly, spread openSUSE.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
I think it would be fine. Not that I can say yes or no. This site, http://en.opensuse.org/OpenSUSE_11.1_Launch_Party_Locations , is where people have openly added their release parties. changing 11.1 to 11.0 or 10.3 you can see where they have been in the past. I'd recommend looking at those, and adding your own to the list.
