Usenix members have beards, sandles, and program.

Uniforum members wear suits.

On a slightly more serious note.  Usenix tends to be much more
technically oriented with a Berkley bias while Uniforum is
concerned with real-world things like end-users, marketing,
standards, and applications.

I find the two groups complementary and have belonged to both.

These are my opinions and in no way anyone's official policy.
