This August marks the 14th anniversary of the first official
release of Linux, the popular open source operating system that
started out as one college student's hobby and has since become a
multi-billion dollar per year international phenomenon. To
celebrate the project's birthday, local enthusiasts are holding the
5th annual Linux picnic
in Sunnyvale, California.
The Linux anniversary picnic ("Picn*x") draws between 400 and
700 Linux and open source enthusiasts and their families each year.
Attendees play sports, talk tech, and even help get Linux running
on the occasional laptop.
This year's event, "Picn*x14" will be held on Sunday, August
14th from 11am to 4pm at
Sunnyvale Baylands Park, 999 East Caribbean Drive in Sunnyvale,
California--just off Highway 237 at the end of Lawrence
Admission is free, and food and drinks will be provided for free
to all those who RSVP in advance. Visitors will have a chance to
win free t-shirts, mugs and other give aways. Palo
Alto based Linux-Consulting.com will be
giving away one rack-mountable Linux server to the winner of a
short essay contest.
