Jonathan Corbet gives us his first-hand impressions.

Interesting tidbits:

"Bob Young's keynote was given to a mostly-empty hall."

"Tim O'Reilly... called for more electronic commerce tools to be written in a free software mode,... stressed the importance of XML as "the ASCII of the future," and admonished developers... free software applications should run on things like Palm Pilots and Playstations."

"the folks at Watchguard, who installed a tap and were handing out full glasses of beer to all who wandered by."

"LinuxCare's swag includes a poster which, in a parody of the 3Com ad, shows, from the rear, a seated lady wearing only a red bra and holding a Red Hat 6.0 box behind her back."
