Linux.com: Linux Expo North America Report: Part 1

“Linux Expo North America, being held April 10-12, 2000 in
Montreal, is the first major Linux conference and tradeshow in
Canada. This conference brings together many well-known members of
the Linux community, as well as startups from around the world.
This is one of the first in a series of international Linux
Expos; in the coming years, plans for similar events in Toronto,
Sao Paulo, Paris, Moscow, Shanghai, Singapore, and Sydney are being
made.

“The first day of the event featured the tutorial sessions.
Notable tutorials included Dirk Hohndel, CTO of SuSE, about the
XFree86 Project, and Jim Fulton, Technical Director of Digital
Creations, about Zope. There were eight tutorials that day….”

“The exhibits also opened on the second day. Several well-known
Linux companies were present, including Red Hat, Atipa Linux
Solutions, and Corel. Stormix also had a rather large presence,
being a Canadian Linux distributor. Companies noted for their
absence included Linuxcare and Caldera Systems. As for Linuxcare,
given the recent events that would have prompted many a question
from the attendees, maybe it’s a good thing they didn’t show
up.”
