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.
