"Long a bastion of geeks with seemingly wild dreams, this year's LinuxWorld Expo will be focused on purely practical matters instead.

The expo will provide more realistic advice and entry-level instruction on using Linux than ever before, according to Charlie Greco, president and CEO of IDG World Expo, the company that presents the show.

This new no-nonsense approach also extends to the products that will be on display on the exhibition floor. A few fun gadgets will make an appearance, but security and network management software will be a major focus at the expo, which takes place Tuesday through Friday at the Jacob Javits Convention Center.

Prior LinuxWorld expos have had the chummy feeling of a religious-revival show, where everyone is preaching to the already converted. But this year, the converted have decided to gently proselytize."
