Despite the overall economic downturn, pre-registration for LinuxWorld's exhibit hall pass is up 50% over last year.

A showcase of the event's lineup includes the Worldwide Developers Conference; a feature presentation by Ed Leonard, Head of Technology for DreamWorks Animation, and the Embedded Linux Pavilion. In addition, one individual, association or organization that has proven outstanding dedication to the open source movement will receive the prestigious $25,000 IDG/Linus Torvalds Community Award.

LinuxWorld exhibitors will utilize the largest gathering of the Open Source community as a forum to announce and demonstrate new products and services as well as award contest winners. Exhibitor highlights include:"
