Reminder: openSUSE Day at LinuxWorld Expo

July 31st, 2008 by

Join the openSUSE Project for a day of fun and FOSS at the LinuxWorld Expo! On Wednesday, August 6th, the openSUSE Project will be holding its first “openSUSE Day” in North America, in conjuction with the LinuxWorld Expo at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

We’ll have a full day of presentations about the openSUSE Project, KDE, GNOME, the Linux kernel, the openSUSE Build Service, and much more.

Come by and learn all about openSUSE, pick up an openSUSE 11.0 DVD and some of the fabulous door prizes — We’ll be giving away two Chumby’s and tons of openSUSE swag — including openSUSE t-shirts, caps, and other big prizes.

The schedule runs from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., including an openSUSE Birds of a Feather at 4:15 p.m. See the full schedule at: http://en.opensuse.org/OpenSUSE_Day_at_LinuxWorld_Expo.

Attendance is free, and if you’re registered you also have access to the show expo floor. To register, go to http://linuxworldexpo.com/live/12/register//SN335015. Select the openSUSE Community Day and sign up.

Want to help with the openSUSE Day or help staff the openSUSE booth in the LWE .Org Pavilion? We’d love to have you! If you’d like to get involved, speak up on the opensuse-marketing list or contact Joe ‘Zonker’ Brockmeier (zonker@opensuse.org).

    Mark Shuttleworth recently said that there needs to be more ways of monetizing Linux. And while I’m not an Ubuntu follower, obviously, he’s still very respectable and a gift to the Linux world. This got me to thinking.My previous supposition was that Linux (or OpenSource) could thrive through strategic partnerships between companies that need some control over operating system development to ensure the survival of their products. This is, of course, what certain companies are doing. And it’s a smart strategy if those companies don’t suffer from slow development only to leave a legacy that survives them and flourishes. To add to this business model, instead of monetizing on subscriptions (old) or training (common), why not include it in the proprietary software price? Suppose 90% of the price is for the software and 10% covers the cost of codeveloping Linux – the Linux tax.

    And there’s the important word: Codevelop.

    Why does it have to be called OpenSource? Isn’t it truly codeveloped? Just thoughts…

      After thoughts…

      The package management and repository system in this distribution is awesome. Although, it’s an infant technology, it will enable companies to create their own repositories and the operating system will do all the updating for them. Nice!

    Cool! I live in Santa Clara, so I just need a ride to get there.
    But…. How much will I have to pay?

    How about having one on the East Coast? I’m about an hour from DC and about 3 from New York. CA is too far away. :-(
