"Over the past 3 days, the Linux world has been in a show-and-tell mood. Finally, the honeymoon is over and it's time to reflect on what really happened here."

"With so many companies making a stand here, the convention hall was literally bursting at the seams. The Expo will be in San Francisco's Moscone Center next year to accommodate approximately 5 times more exhibits. Although all the big names made it to the expo, there were some surprising no-shows. The most noticeable absence was Transmeta. Yes, they're not really a Linux company, but they do plan to run Linux on the appliances powered by their chips. KDE didn't have an official booth, and the closest thing there was a small booth for a company that works with KDE. Surprisingly, Gnome had a big presence through Helix Code and Eazel's stations. Countless other Linux companies were absent most likely because of the lack of enough space."

"To complement the free-spirit nature of the exhibit floor, tutorials were conducted through out each day to train on specific topics ranging from Linux security to developing drivers. For the most part, the trainers did a good job of laying out their subjects in layman's terms so everyone could follow along. The most interesting tutorial was on Linux 3D acceleration, which discussed the future of OpenGL and Mesa. The most useful tutorial covered tips on securing a Linux network."
