linuxology writes: Silicon Prairie (a print and online magazine owned and operated by the Chicago Tribune) has a good article on RedHat's GeekWorld 99. For those who might of been waiting in TPM ticket lines for way to long, GeekWorld is where 6 fortunate geeks got scurried away from LinuxExpo to a wired beach house equiped with a T1! Sand and surf...

"Editors note: When Silicon Prairie got wind of Geekworld '99, a Red Hat Software contest in which a random group of Penguinheads were chosen for an all-expenses paid retreat to a T1-wired beach house in North Carolina, we knew we had to be there. After all, we knew many of you would want to be there. We sent Silicon Prairie contributing reporter Jason Compton (a sometimes geek, himself) to live it up with the Coke-swilling party of six Linux disciples."

"Red Hat Software of Raleigh, N.C., fully appreciated the effect the release of Red Hat Linux 6.0 would have on loyal customers. The company knew thousands of Linux fanatics would not emerge from their Coca-Cola-can-laden dens for days, instead preferring to hang indoors and master the new version of the Unix-alike operating system."
