Back in the days of dinosaurs, there was this thing called LUG - Linx User groups. Where people, that used that once esoteric OS called Linux shared information, drank a beer and laughed at all the sheeple who used something different.

They also made plans to raise awareness and share ideas. Maybe something like that would be fun for Sailfish OS Users, too? Why not meet your local Sailfish in person? We could use this thread to organize the gatherings. Every anwser being a different city.

Some time ago we were sitting in one of the local fast food restaurants, my daughter and me, waiting for our dinner. There were others waiting too - the hamburgers of that place are worth waiting for - and one of the customers was talking on the phone. It took more than a polite glance to see that her phone looked familiar. It had an orange outside. She received her order and headed for the door. I couldn't believe my own nerve, but I made her stop and then showed her my own plain white phone. "Jolla.", she said and smiled. I just smiled like an idiot and nodded.

But it was an amazing experience for my daughter. She saw the young lady leave and then turmed to me.

"Do all Jolla owners say 'hi' to eachother?"

I hear owners of Land Rover cars greet eachother when driving. ...even those they don't know. One thing is sure, though. I never expected to see another Jolla phone in this tiny town. Now I have.

...and I said hello.

The only Jolla phones other than mine I have ever seen were at FOSDEM 2015 and community restaurant evening during that event. And a colleague's one because I made him buy it ^_^

Otherwise, I haven't seen one in daily "regular" life yet but I think I would do the same thing you did. That is a nice story :) Bikers also greet each other on the roads btw.

In munich I know of the one of my wife and a friends one who had an N9 before and was desperate until I pointed him to Jolla. I'll be at that Restaurant either way on that day regardless if anyone shows up. But it would be great fun!

@lispy - A strange thing to wish for. ...especially when considering that most jolla phone owners are male...

My fiancee eagerly awaits her Jolla tablet, by the way. :D
