"Jim will moderate the exchange, which will be held on the first
day (May 8) of this year's Summit, which will be held in San
Francisco. As with previous Collaboration Summits, there is no fee
to attend, but attendance is by confirmation only, as the size is
limited to a few hundred to maximize the interactivity of this
annual gathering of the elite of the Linux clan.
"While the OS debate provides the most provocative portion of
the program, the rest will provide a great deal of substance - and,
who knows, perhaps a few surprises as well.
"Operating system faceoffs are fun, but many regard the
highlight of the Collaboration Summit to be annual Kernel developer
panel presentation, followed by a lengthy audience Q&A. This
year's panel will focus on what's coming next to the Kernel, and
will be moderated by LWN.net editor-in-chief Jon Corbet. Panelists
will include the community’s leading maintainers: Greg
Kroah-Hartmann, Andrew Morton, Keith Packard and Ted Ts'o."
