"The Linux Community of India is pleased to announce that (just like last year) it is participating the one of the largest IT events in Asia - Bangalore IT.COM 2000. This event, which shot into the limelight last year by totally eclipsing other IT events in Asia in terms of size and attendence (an estimated 350,000 people!) also "rocked the boat" when it announced last year that one of the theme pavilions was the Linux Pavilion."

"As it turned out, the Linux Pavilion was the most popular of them all (surpassing even the USA pavilion!), and approximately 150,000 visitors were logged at this pavilion alone! Obviously, Linux is of greatest interest to India!"

"The Linux India stall was rated as "the Crown Jewel of IT.COM" last year, and there is every intention to better that evaluation this year. The success of the Linux Pavilion has prompted the organizers of the show to repeat it this year - only *this* time, it is one of the largest pavilions at the event!"
