Germany: LinuxTag 2008

With more than 11,000 visitors, LinuxTag in Berlin is by far the most important Linux and Open Source Software show in Europe. As in earlier years, Gentoo was again present at the expo after we missed the last two LinuxTag expos taking place in Wiesbaden 2006 and Berlin 2007. This year about 10 developers and other Gentoo enthusiasts (including users from the German support channel, #gentoo-anfaenger) helped man the booth. Even some phpBB developers showed up.
