Remembering LinuxWorld UK


Article from Issue 74/2007

This year’s UK LinuxWorld brought out the usual blend of speeches, products, conference sessions, and aisle antics.

The Linux exhibition at Olympia is a regular high point on the London calendar for Linux enthusiasts. The show now operates under the LinuxWorld banner and offers a conference alongside the free exhibition. This year’s event took place on October 25th and 26th. The attendees were the usual varied bunch. There were plenty of beards, and at least some sandals were clearly visible, but so were a good number of suits. The Show The general look of the show was similar to previous years. As you might expect, the large stands were those of Novell, HP, IBM, and Oracle. These large booths were surrounded by many smaller stands belonging to smaller companies. Red Hat did not have a booth, and they had only a tiny presence at the IBM pavilion. But the news that came out overnight between the two days of the show brought their name into sharp focus.
