Linux.com: LinuxWorld Conference and Expo: Day 2Feb 05, 2000, 21:10 (0 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Jeff Alami)
"LinuxWorld Conference and Expo has the distinction of being the first major Linux event held after the first wave of Linux IPO's. There's more confidence in the air at this event, as more people accept the inevitability of open source, and the market success of Linux. Linux is established, but we have managed to keep our community throughout the process. Five years ago, a geek would tell you, "run Linux, not Windows." Nowadays, a geek would tell you, "run Debian, not Red Hat."
"The day began with the keynote by Dr. Larry Augustin, VA Linux Systems' CEO. The spirit of the keynote was that Open Source is inevitable because it is more economically efficient. Open Source software also belongs to the user, not a single company, so it's an empowering technology."
