Live From LinuxWorld Conference and Expo

For those of you who haven't heard yet, LinuxWorld Conference & Expo (LWCE), is taking place this week at the Moscone Center West in beautiful San Francisco, California. LWCE runs until August 11, and the organizers are expecting more than 11,000 attendees this year. LWCE kicked off today with conference sessions, and jumps into full gear on Tuesday with Charles Phillips keynote. Phillips is the President of Oracle. There is plenty to look forward to this week, including keynotes from Mark Shaver of theMozilla Foundation, Martin Fink of HP, and the OSDL state of the union. There's also a exhibit hall, with companies running the gamut from Penguin Computing to Microsoft. (Yes, that Microsoft.) In all, more than 180 companies are exhibiting this year, up 25 from last year. HP, IBM, Intel, Novell, Oracle, Red Hat, SAP and Sun Microsystems are a few of the other companies you can expect to see on the show floor this year. If you happen to be in the San Francisco area, the exhibit hall opens on Tuesday at 10:00 AM. The cost of passes is $35 at the door, but if you're not local to San Francisco, don't fret. We'll be bringing you stories, photos and podcasts from the show floor, so be sure to check in regularly this week for plenty from LinuxWorld Conference & Expo. A few key announcements are expected this week. The Debian Common Core Alliance press conference is scheduled for tomorrow, so look for more on that as we get it. Novell's press conference is also scheduled for tomorrow morning, so we'll no doubt have more information on OpenSUSE, and how Novell is planning to implement the project. Check for those stories and more tomorrow on the Linux Magazine website!
