Changing Face of Linux

RELATED TOPICS

Several months ago, we reported on the changing face of the Linux

community. These shifts have dramatically increased. I recently served

as a product judge at the IDG LinuxWorld along with Megamind President

Deb Murray (http://www.megamind.org) and UniForum President Alan Fedder

(http://www.uniforum.org). As we reviewed the "best of breed" Linux

products we were impressed at the different focus and attitude evident

among the leading vendors. I believe we all felt that Linux was at a

crossroads and the spirit of open-source freedom may no longer define

the movement.

Megamind's Murray reflected:

"It's hard to believe the first LinuxWorld Conference and Expo that

was barely able to fill half of the SJ Convention Center happened a

little over 4 years ago [albeit Linux has been around for 10 years]
