"I came to CES for several reasons. I had never been to one and
thought it a great opportunity to go to a "mainstream" event and
see just exactly what goes on. I wanted to see if it really was the
biggest of them all (which it is) and I wanted to see how much FOSS
related stuff I could find and in so doing get an idea of just how
far Open Source has penetrated into the "mainstream". Needless to
say I was in for a surprise, if you could call it that.

did not expect to find Open Source products, software or hardware
at every turn. But I did expect to find some, or a few, or a couple
though. So far I have found one, that's right one, just one thing
running Linux on it. So here is my story of how I barely missed
experiencing an "Epic Fail" at CES 2009."
