Fine Tim,  go to the Desktop Linux Summit, and even get paid to do it :-)  But don't expect the
rest of us to drink the Lindows^H^H^H^Hspire Kool-aid.  This event last year was supposed to be
"open" and then Lindows pulled the Carpet out of the Open Side of things.  Hopefully this year is
better, but I have my doubts.

Anytime Linspire is involved with anything I'm a bit cautious.  I did sign up for their choice pc
thing where they promised to fight for Open software then they go and take $20 million from
Microsoft so I might be a tad bitter.

Here is the slashdot story that talks about last year's event 

I hope you find it useful, but I think the Ottawa Linux Symposium or a Linux World is a better
event, for your employer's dollar.
