DeReOs is a relatively young grid, but its origins are venerable. It began
as a group of friends, and then, as people's expertise increased, a group of regions on OSGrid. The name comes from "German (Deutsche) Regions of OpenSim". From SL to OSgrid, in some cases then to Metropolis, and finally to a grid of their own, these friends have all got many years of virtual experience, in technical, artistic and social terms. More about that below.
Alira Sonoda: Surabaya is a cache for textures and your inventory based on Java. It improves the speed at which objects in the world rez and reduces inventory lag by delivering the necessary files directly to the viewer.
Initially the idea was to have a small scale summer party, but once the proposal was floated, it became clear that many friends of DeReOs wanted to participate. They even invited HG Safari to be part of the fun!
The grid runs on Arriba, a fork of the open simulator code that is renowned for being fast and with many bug-fixes that make it a pleasure to use. It's by Freaky Tech, follow this link to learn a bit more about Arriba. The grids participating in the Sommerevent are mostly small, mostly German language, but they're friendly, fun-loving and welcoming so there's really very little language barrier, indeed, it feels like a vacation abroad to be with these guys.
DeReOs grid is open to the public, but it's not a 'public' grid - residents are a restricted group of friends. It has lots of interesting regions, and Alira explained what you can see here.
Alira Sonoda: Ly offers not only a sandbox for crafting. You can also get beautiful skins, weapons and shoes.

Alira Sonoda: PSSMG Freebie Mall is a region filled with things that such an avatar needs. Dresses, costumes, hair, shoes, skin, jewelry .. Well you know what I mean. Just everything. It's by Victor and Vivienne Clary. PSSMG Village is the expansion of the mall. Here you will find things that you need for cultivation: houses, textures, stage recollections.The market place, where the Christmas market or Easter market takes place, is certainly worth a visit. There is also a catwalk for fashion shows.

Alira Sonoda: Every 1st Saturday of the month: GFZ Party
On Wednesdays, in the evening hours, European time, the party is on BlueWave, where Samira Samtanko has been hosting a weekly music event for years. And of course, Alira's region Valhal merits a visit not just for the outdoorsy feel, but for the interesting freebies that range from wrought iron gates, to wedding reception paraphernalia, to wood stoves.
