Open Systems World/FedUNIX '95
Open Systems World/FedUNIX '95 was held the week of November 13 at the Washington Convention Center, Washington, DC. The show included the second annual Linux Conference, sponsored by Linux Journal, which featured a day of informative sessions and tutorials and a one-day class for novices and intermediate Linux users. The first day covered several topics, including an introduction to Linux, building a World Wide Web site with Linux, and porting to Linux. The one-day class, entitled “Linux for the New User”, was taught by the Editor of Linux Journal, Michael K. Johnson.
The trade show ran for two days following the Linux conference. Most of the Linux-related companies were in the same area and received a lot of traffic. The overall feel of the show was that Linux was one of the “hottest” topics and that we needed to work together to ensure the success of the “better” system.
Caldera had one of the largest Linux-related booths and was situated towards the center of the show floor. Open Systems World also set up a 40'x40' “Linux-Lounge” next to the Digital booth consisting of three cocktail tables surrounded by chairs where people could sit and talk about Linux. Whenever I passed the Linux Lounge, it was packed with people doing just that.
Although Open Systems World/FedUNIX occurred in Washington, DC during a federal government shutdown and the same week as Comdex in Las Vegas, it looked as though the Linux Conference was a success, and we are looking forward to next year.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
