"The LinuxWorld Conference & Expo, set to take place at New York's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center starting Jan. 30, is widely expected to be the largest gathering of vendors and Linux enthusiasts under one roof. The stage is set for the conference to be the launching ground for a mass of exciting new products, ranging from small, futuristic handhelds running Linux to large, enterprise backup servers and storage devices."

"BigStorage.com Chief Executive Officer Sam Bogoch offered one prediction, saying "Storage and 2.4 are probably the two biggest trends we expect." He had good reason to say so. Bogoch's San Francisco-based open source storage company recently landed the largest Linux storage deal ever with its successful installation of 10 TB of its iRAID product for Redwood City, Calif.-based EMusic.com."

"In addition to standard-sized servers, the incredible shrinking server and PC will be featured at the show. Singapore-based Celestix intends to highlight its new Aries Microserver Plus, reportedly the smallest and lightest SOHO server on the market. David Feldman, the founder and CEO of Palo Alto, Calif.'s ZF Linux Devices, will showcase a postage stamp-sized computer called the MachZ PC-on-a-chip, which he hopes will dramatically change the world around us."
