"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!"
