"Linux Expo was, without a doubt, an important show. Now in its 5th year, the show gave off a vibe last felt at the new benchmark for Linux trade shows, LinuxWorld."

"Red Hat was just one exhibitor out of many... there were several products and companies worth mentioning."

"Jon "maddog" Hall was one of the most popular attendees at the show, and a small contingent followed him wherever he went."

"Not to be forgotten are the post-show events, which seem to have become a staple at Linux trade shows. Worth mentioning are receptions hosted by Red Hat, LinuxWorld, IBM, and SuSE. Most of these, not surprisingly, had a Star Wars theme."

"The show, however, was not without its glitches. By now, you have no doubt heard about the LinuxCare poster... Pacific HiTech, which was not an exhibitor, was asked to leave when seen passing out TurboLinux shirts on the show floor."
