from Chicago IL VIA Las Vegas, NV
Tonight LIVE on


At 5:45pm pt, PLEASE adjust to your time zone.... We have a unique show for tonight on the Linux Show.

Segment One- The Enterprise IT Week Open Source Town Hall Meeting.
We will be broadcasting the Open SOurce Town Hall Meeting tonight live from the Key note stage following Darl McBrides Keynote to discuss Open Source in the Enterprise. It should prove to be a very interesting discussion as a representative from SCO will be at the event.

Here is the "official" description of the Town Hall Meeting from The Enterprise Week Expo site.

The Open Source Town Hall Meeting
Conference chairman Jack Powers moderates a Town Hall discussion on the implications of the SCO actions and the future of Open Source. (Open to all registered CDXPO visitors.)
Jeff Gerhardt, Host and Producer, The Linux Show
Steven J. Henry, Chair, IP Transactions Group, Wolf, Greenfield & Sacks, P.C.
David Schatsky, Senior Vice President of Research, Jupiter Research
Chris Sontag, Senior Vice President and General Manager, SCOsource, The SCO Group

A couple of important notes of consideration.
1) For those of you who have been giving Jupiter Media a lot of grief about inviting McBride to Speak (his keynote), you should be aware that this Town Hall Meeting was in place as a platform for opposing views (truths) from long ago. The complaints about Jupiter are not warranted. If fact the reverse is true. With all the lies spewing from SCO, the more often they speak at events, the more foolish they (SCO) look.

2) It is entirely possible that this show may not come off as expected. The network reliability here at the Mandalay Bay is "ify" at best. If this does not work we will attempt to record the segment and broadcast it this coming Thursday evening.

Segment Two- Open Discussion-

The regular panel will be having a conversation about their impressions of the Town Hall Meeting as well as any important news coming out of Vegas (comdex) this week. There will be a 5 to 10 minute break between segments to shift equipment around.
