"One of the things that really interests people attending
this show is LinuxFest. Everybody is like is: "Was it as bad as we
heard?", "Dude, how did you survive?" and "Wow. sorry I missed it
(said with extreme sarcasm)". Fest in a lot of ways was a bad thing
for me personally, because it almost shook my faith in Linux I was
thinking "am I the only one who gets this?" I was also afraid that
Fest might be someone's first exposure to Linux. Expo would be
a great place for a newbie to come see Linux. That is not to say
all of Fest was bad the low turnout gave me a chance to talk to
Bruce Perens in depth and I might not have had a chance to learn
"The other thing a lot of people can't get over is how much Expo
has grown. A lot of people have mentioned that they attended the
first expo when it was in a small hall and only half filled. I
consider this a very good thing."
