"The Bazaar had a different feel than some recent Linux events such as November's Linux Business Expo in Las Vegas, the site of Comdex/Fall. The Bazaar had a more comfortable and non-commercial feel to it. However, the show didn't seem to attract nearly as many guests to make the trouble worthwhile for some of its exhibitors. Let's hope this improves in the next Bazaar.

"We were placed in the community area, sponsored by Andover.Net. Rather than being in some lonely corner, the community area was front and centre, showcasing the work of groups such as the free BSD's (FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD), Debian, Stampede, and others. The largest booths were home to EarthWeb, IBM, and Copyleft...."

"Some of the many bright spots of the event were the keynote presentations. Richard Stallman of the Free Software Foundation, Red Hat's Bob Young, the (in)famous consumer watchdog Ralph Nader, Michael Cowpland of Corel, and other well-known figures took the stage throughout the 3-day event."
