"The best place to see the Linux fan following is at the LinuxWorld. People from all over the world were here in the San Jose Convention Center to attend this mega event. Some of us (that includes me too) traveled thousands of miles to get here. The entire town had Linux painted on it, the hotels were full, parking lots were getting filled up faster than before and generally the buzz words were Linux, Linux and Linux."

"The first key note address was give by Michael Dell, chairman and CEO of Dell. He did his presentation on Linux using the Eizel desktop which was a cool thing to. He also got one of his Linux customers - Toyota, to give a demo of how they use Linux."

"Immediately after Dell's keynote, Linus Torvalds came on stage to give the awards. The IDG/Linus Torvalds community award of 25,000$ went to Debian. Another major boost for Debian was that nice looking Debian boxes were available for free - thanks to their sponsors. After the awards I had this wonderful opportunity of meeting up with Linus Torvalds. He with his Penguin Smile spoke for nearly an hour about the future of Linux."
