UNIX, Linux and *BSD users have always understood the importance in meeting regularly with other users in the same geographical region. This paper will examine the different approaches followed by UNIX (DKUUG), Linux (SSLUG and FLUG) *BSD (BSD-DK) users in Denmark. A number of success criteria will be proposed, and the success of the User Groups will be measured and presented. Moreover the paper will examine the area of mutual interest and how the User Groups coordinate their works.
