LinuxWorld New York Pictorial

by Richard Vernon

The overall attitude was very positive, especially in comparison with recent Linux trade shows. Most exhibitors are reporting a higher-than-usual number of referrals and general interest. Everywhere is the evidence of the maturation of the penguin OS.

Our own Linux Journal booth was pretty bustling as well, but we were able to snatch a few moments to get around the floor to do some visual reporting.
