I hope, by now, most of you are aware of the upcoming Linux
Conference being held in Sydney. It has been a long and difficult
road for most of the organisers.
Attempting to work out a schedule when you have such well know
Linux personalities as: John `maddog' Hall, Alan Cox, David Miller
and Rik van Riel was not easy. As well as scheduling some of the up
and coming greats: Richard Gooch, Juan Quintela, Daniel Phillips
and Jeff Dike we agnosised over each talk.
And that was just the kernel hackers!
We have some fantastic talks on distributed contents, clusters
and large system administration. Plus plenty of eye-candy and
war-stories from the front line of new architectures.
Try your hand at our (in)famous Beach-Proof Hardware
Contest, mix it up at our non-TCP/IP networking event and
attempt to beat the Australians in the crowd with our Pub
