Hello, LinuxWorld! - It's so nice to have you back where you belong
Tuesday, August 15 2006 @ 12:11 PM EDT

The LinuxWorld conference is going on today in San Francisco, so a big hello to you guys having fun there.

To celebrate the relaunch of the new LinuxWorld, the magazine -- in new hands I am happy to say -- I was asked by Don Marti to write an article on Linux's Legal World After SCO. I hope you enjoy it. I enjoyed writing it, most particularly for the *new* LinuxWorld.

A brief word of explanation from their About Us page:

While LinuxWorld.com was formerly produced by a licensee of International Data Group, the site is now owned and operated by IDG's Network World - drawing on IDG's broad information technology resources (see IDG.com) - and produced in conjunction with the IDG LinuxWorld Conference & Expo.

[smiles]

They are celebrating Linux's 15th anniversary at the conference.

I've already heard that there is a huge FOSS presence. Take a look at this list of exhibitors at the .ORG Pavillion. And here's the complete list of exhibitors. The opening keynote, "Free Culture: What We Need From You," was by Lawrence Lessig, Professor of Law, Stanford Law School, and founder and chair of Creative Commons. More details here [PDF] and here.

I see they had a session yesterday on working with log files. I really wish I could have attended that one. If you did, send in a report on what you learned, will you? And today I see lots of goodies, particularly a panel led by Steven Vaughan Nichols on "The State of Linux on the Desktop: An OSDL Desktop Linux Working Group Panel Discussion", and Google's Chris Di Bona has a session on "The ABCs of Software Licenses" and IBM's Bob Sutor another intriguingly titled, "When Good Enough is Better". Lots more: Jay Beale and Crispin Cowan on "Securing Linux Systems with Bastille Linux and AppArmor." I so wish I could be there for that.

That isn't even mentioning the Golden Penguin Bowl. Sigh.
