"In October, IDG World Expo announced that LinuxWorld, the
largest conference devoted to Linux technology, would relaunch as
the OpenSource World Conference & Expo. The show is retaining
existing LinuxWorld features, but will open up to open source
applications on platforms beyond Linux. To be held at the Moscone
Center West as usual, OpenSource World will, as was previously
announced, be co-located with IDG World Expo's third annual Next
Generation Data Center (NGDC) event. In addition, a "CloudWorld"
conference will also be colocated.
"California Secretary of State Debra Bowen (pictured), will
offer the keynote address to OpenSource World 2009, says IDG World
Expo. Bowen is said to have been been recognized in the open source
industry for her familiarity with the benefits of open source."
