I went to LinuxWorld for the first time yesterday. I don’t think I need to go back again. It really wasn’t bad, it just that it was not that interesting. I just didn’t see any ground breaking technology. Most of the vendors were pitching data center tools. Frankly, I’m more interested in virtual services like Amazon’s EC2, I don’t want to be in the data center business anymore. The most interesting group was the little corner were Ubuntu, Debian, OpenVZ, PostgreSQL, and FreeBSD were hanging out. There were a lot more interesting conversations happening there, but nothing you couldn’t find on the internet.
