What We Are Not

  • Linux ?

    a good choice of Linux groups here (A few of our membership go to both BIM & Linux groups, & some BIM members work on Linux professionaly & BSD privately, etc). If you solely want to discuss the Linux base systems, excluding all packages. then a Linux group may appeal more, but do realise the Vast amount of commonality Linux & BSD systems share, eg GCC & ghostscript & other FSF & X11 & KDE & perl & vmware & tens of thousands of other public source packages that can run on both BSD and Linux. BSD & Linux on occasion also adopt portions from each others /usr/src, ideas &/or code, so we co-operate in that, as in also our common dislike of closed source, Microsoft, viruses & software patent problems etc. mandates a BSD-only approach to the base /usr/src systems support, (but of course we share an interest in Many apps with Linux people, etc ).
    • We also have some people who regularly go to both our Stammtisch & a Linux Stammtisch the same evening.
    • We also have people who work with Linux during the day, & switch to BSD in the evening.
    • We also discuss & use common things, eg FSF, GCC, X Windows, Qt, Tex , FVWM window manager, EXMH window manager, open office, & a ports collection of tens of thousands of packages, doubtless many of which will run on Linux too, some developed on Linux & merely ported to BSD, & some other way round).
    • We do of course discussing porting stuff to & fro between Linux & BSD,
    • What we do not't cover is Linux specific distro & interface etc stuff, leaving that to the Linux groups to discuss.
    • Linux magazines are also distributes at thhe the BIM Stammtisch, eg an article on TeX is equally valid for Linux & BSD.
    • Munich Linux User Groups
