Jon catches up with Linux users in London and rounds up the activities of some Linux User Groups around the world.

This month I was in London, speaking at the LinuxWorld Expo on the portability of the Linux kernel. It’s always interesting visiting LinuxWorld events, especially given the way they’ve changed in the years since the dotcom boom. These days, Linux-World is more about big corporations showing off their latest products and much less about grass roots enthusiasm. Still, we all turn up because LinuxWorld serves as a convenient opportunity to bring a bunch of Linux folks together in the same place on a semi-annual basis. And I guess that’s as good a reason as any to go again next year. For a full description of the show, check out Roger’s show report elsewhere in this issue.
