"Keynote speaker at European premiere of the "Linux Only" trade fair is Jon "maddog" Hall."

"The LinuxWorld Conference & Expo will be held for the first time at the Frankfurt Exhibition Center from October 5th - 7th, 2000. The trade fair will be the first business-to-business event in Europe dedicated exclusively to the Linux operating system and open solutions. Nearly 10,000 visitors from the computer industry are expected to attend the event featuring over 70 companies and more than 9,000 square meters (90,000 square feet) of exhibits. Jon "maddog" Hall, executive director of Linux International (LI), will be the keynote speaker at the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo. The German Linux federation LIVE is supporting the Expo."

"The black-and-yellow penguin, the Linux trademark, has become a serious competitor for leading manufacturers of operating systems. The Open Source software now holds the number two spot in the network and server area. This alternative operating system, which evolved within the Internet as an anarchical response to the monopolistic strategy of companies like Microsoft, is gaining more and more attention from IT decision-makers in the business world. Linux, developed in 1991 by the Finnish student Linus Thorvalds, is the operating system of the future. The LinuxWorld Conference & Expo provides a unique information platform for professionals in the IT industry, general users and the Linux community."
