At 6pm pst, 7pm rmt, 8pm cst, and 9pm east.... Kevin, Jeff, PJ, Doc Searls (of the Linux Journal), and Emmett Plant have a great show lined up tonight on The Linux Show!!
In Segment One- Hot News: We will be covering the hot Linux news of the week, plus interesting news in the greater technology world. High on the agenda will be the news about all the VA Linux Class Action Law suits. We will discuss what South Park and VA have in common.
In Segments Two - Lineo: the IPO is pulled. Lineo is still in their quite period so no one from Lineo can comment, but we will discuss the withdrawn IPO application. We will discuss this very wise (in our opinion) move to delay the IPO and its possible ramifications on the rest of the Linux Community.
In Segments Three - The VERY HOT news about IBM and NCSA Super Computers: We will be joined by Dan Reed, Director at NCSA and Dave Gelardi, IBM, to talk about today's announcment about the National Center for Supercomputing Applications and how they have purchased two Linux clusters, allowing their researchers to conduct computational work that includes scientific fields such as astrophysics and cosmology, computational chemistry and biology, and structural design. This purchase underscores the power and maturity of Linux on Intel-based systems for high performance computing. It is recognition of the fact that clustering and open source software have been widely adopted by the scientific community because they are scaleable solutions that can meet the requirements for price and performance; that will enable scientists to focus more on the results of their research initiatives, rather than building boxes.

Remember tune in at 6pm pst, 7pm rmt, 8pm cst, and 9pm est.
