LWN reports on LinuxWorld Expo

“This conference is an interesting experience. Just look at the
series of press releases that has come out this week to see how
seriously the business world is now taking Linux. If there’s one
thing in the air here, it’s that a lot of people are smelling money
and want their part of it. Nothing too surprising there, I
guess.”

“Still, one must find some things to complain about, no?”

“Certainly the decision to put all of the birds of a feather
(BOF) sessions together, not only at the same time but in the same
room, is a bit questionable. The email garden” is inadequate.”

“both keynote speeches this morning were tremendously
self-serving.”

“Nonetheless, this seems to be a good conference. Lots of
interesting people, lots of interesting corporate moves. It may
well be seen as a turning point in the commercial development of
Linux.”
