Linuxcare: 1st Annual International Linux Plug Fest
Jan 04, 2001, 22:23 (0 Talkback[s])
Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"A Plug Fest is a 2-3 day event in which major OEMs bring their
latest and greatest systems, and IHVs bring their components to
test on all of the systems for compatibility. This will be a
distribution-neutral, platform neutral Linux Plug Fest, which we
believe will be a first in the Linux community. We will completely
sponsor the event, managing all facility requirements, scheduling
and so forth."
"This event is being held to promote compatibility between the
newest hardware and the latest Linux kernel in the industry. Our
goal is to eliminate interoperability problems by ensuring proper
implementation of Linux products."
"Linuxcare will facilitate the process by scheduling private, 1
hour test sessions between add-in card and system, motherboard, and
BIOS vendors. Linuxcare Labs will provide technical consultants and
"gurus" to assist in testing and debugging. Engineers must
accompany all equipment tested. Please see the Test Plan for more
details on testing."
