Every month on the 3th friday of the month, there is a meeting in the Vrijzinnig ontmoetingscentrum at Hasselt. The theme of the meeting changes every month.

This year (2007) the management decided to participate into another world: Linux based UBUNTU. They even hosted the release party for the latest ‘Gutsy Gibbon’ in coörporation with UBUNTU Belgium. This interaction worked so well that soon after the party they unanimous decided to become a full ‘supporting point’ for UBUNTU users within the region.

They offer very comfortable accommodations for there member meeting into which all necessary display and audio equipments are foreseen.
