"The 5th Annual Linux Showcase and Conference, which opens first week of November in Oakland, California, expands its program via a joint conference with XFree86. Already recognized as the heavyweight of technical Linux conferences, the inclusion of XFree86 rounds out an already impressive program.

"XFree86 has been running as a developers hot-house at ALS for the last two years," said XFree86 Program Chair Keith Packard. "We were delighted to be invited to share the Oakland Marriott with ALS as we have always found the ALS atmosphere and community to be supportive of our efforts."

XFree86 is already used in a wide variety of operating systems and has seen a surge in use within the Linux environment as Linux has grown within the mainstream computing industry. The XFree86 conference runs concurrently with ALS, providing opportunities to share current and upcoming projects within a community that typically works in isolation and without the interaction already enjoyed by Linux."
