Segment Two- LinuxWorld Conference & Expo News-
Tonight we are going to joined by Warwick Davies Group Vice President IDG World Expo to talk about what is new this year with our favorite Linux Conference (now that ALS is gone), the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo held next month January 20th through 23rd at NYC's Javit's center. The event is of course put on by the folks at IDG World Expo, a business unit of IDG.
If you have been living under a rock the last few years, LinuxWorld Conference & Expo is the premier event exclusively focused on Linux and open source solutions. As the world's most comprehensive marketplace for open source products and services, LinuxWorld provides business decision-makers with information and resources to implement Linux and open source solutions into business infrastructure and enterprise networks. Plus it is fun.
Editorial Note: TLS will be broadcasting17 hours of live broadcasts from the Javits Center in NYC over the three day run of the event. As we embark upon our 7th year of webcasting TLS (The Linux Show), we find it very gratifying that we can renew our long relationship with the folks at IDG who have been so kind over the years to give us their support in bringing our broadcast to their technology events.
