[News] Linux President to be Inaugurated in LCA2009

Hash: SHA1

Congratulations Mr President - Linux Australia goes to the vote

,----[ Quote ]
| A new President is about to be inaugurated; yes, Linux Australia's Council is 
| in the midst of its general elections with the results to be declared at the 
| annual general meeting held as part of Linux.Conf.Au (LCA) 2009.  


Building A PC Case From Spare Shampoo Bottles

,----[ Quote ]
| A feature of Linux.conf.au 2009 in Hobart is Batteries Not Included, a 
| tech-influenced art event -- and one of the more striking installation ideas  
| is the Frank Zappa Project, a garbage bin for collecting plastic shampoo 
| bottles from delegate hotel rooms to be recycled into casing for machines 
| built as part of the OLPC project.   


Live from Down Under: Report from Linux.conf.au 2009

| For FOSS fans, there's no better place to be this week than Hobart, state 
| capitol of the Australian state Tasmania. That's where Linux.conf.au 2009 is 
| being held through Saturday, January 24.  


"I’d be glad to help tilt lotus into into the death spiral. I could do it
Friday afternoon but not Saturday. I could do it pretty much any time the
following week."

LCA2009: Going the Satellite route with Red Hat

,----[ Quote ]
| The company in question is Red Hat; its revenue went up 22 percent in the
| third US quarter, with earnings going up by 20 percent. Those are certainly
| figures that no-one would sneeze at.
| Hence, it was to be expected that Richard Keech, who works for Red Hat
| locally as principal consultant, would be wearing a grin on his face when I
| met him to discuss the talk he gave at the Australian national Linux
| conference in Hobart.


LCA2009: That mysterious thing called the kernel

,----[ Quote ]
| Corbet pointed out that maintaining code outside the mainline kernel was
| expensive; if code made it to this kernel, the one that is handled by
| Torvalds, then the chances of it being in every distribution were very good.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
