source community. Winners will be announced at LinuxWorld
Conference & Expo, held August 26-30, 2001 at San Francisco's
Moscone Convention Center.
The $25,000 IDG/Linus Torvalds Community Award will be presented

exceptional dedication to the open source movement. This award will
be presented by Linus Torvalds, creator of Linux, immediately
following the morning keynote presentation on Wednesday, August 29,
IDG World Expo will also present the Open Source Product

"The open source community thrives on recognizing the innovation
of its members," said Rob Scheschareg, vice president of sales,
marketing and product development for IDG World Expo. "LinuxWorld
is packed with award opportunities for both companies and
independent developers. Winners not only benefit from the marketing
exposure that results, but also from the peer-to-peer recognition
that is so valuable among members of this community."
