At 6pm pt, 7pm mt, 8pm ct, and 9pm et.... Kevin Hill, Jeff
Gerhardt, Doc Searls (Linux Journal), Arne Flones and Russ
Pavlicek; have another down right spooky show lined up tonight on
The Linux Show!!
Segment One- The News. We will cover
THE HOT NEWS of the last few weeks tonight. In
particular, a Gnomedex Update from Doc Searls.
Segment Two- To SCO or not to SCO- News from
Tonight Jeff will be sitting in the press room of the MGM Grand on
the Las Vegas Strip. He will be calling in LIVE with Opinder Bawa
the new Senoir VP of technology from Caldera/SCO.
With the name change, the redirection to Unix, the continued
support of Linux, and turning their business model on its ear,
there have been a lot of changes at SCO in the last 48 hours.
Opinder will help us wade through their new direction to help us
make sense out of all the kaos.
From Jeff-I have to tell you all, I know
there have been a lot of knee jerk reactions about these changes,
with comments like "here goes Caldera again". But what you have to
understand here is that this company has gone through a transition.
It is no longer a "Linux" company, but a Unix company that will
also support Linux. It is NOT the same creature, and there are good
and even interesting reasons. Join the show before you
Do not forget the:
Tell Ten Friends Campaign
We ask that you tell 10 of your friends and associates about the
AOTC and GeekPAC and the need to contribute to BOTH organizations.
Also ask them to Tell Ten Friends of their own.
This will make the AOTC nd GeekPAC grow like an organic entity,
like a political virus.
It is important that people contribute to both organzations, if
they can legally do so. ONLY US voters may contribute to GeekPAC.
Anyone may contribute to the AOTC, even our friens from around the
world. Donation forms are located at http://www.aotc.info/joinhelp/joinform.html
for the AOTC, and http://www.geekpac.com/joinhelp/joinform.html
