| In case you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last several months, I’d like 
| to remind you that the Linux Plumbers Conference is currently soliciting 
| submissions for the following tracks:  
|    1. Audio: Lennart Poettering
|    2. Boot and Init: Dave Jones
|    3. Embedded Systems: Greg Kroah-Hartman and David Woodhouse
|    4. Energy Efficiency, Performance, and Power Management
|    5. Inter-Distributor Cooperation: James Bottomley



No Justification Need

| What's at the forefront of my crabbiness is the almost-complete capture of
| the Open Source Business Conference's news cycle by Brad Smith's presence at
| that conference left me wondering who else was even there this week, other
| than Smith, Matt Asay, and a few pundits and luminaries. In a nicely done
| spin for the media, OSBC suddenly became about how Microsoft braved the
| lion's den, instead of the real progress a lot of companies are making in
| open source development and business.      


All That Got Stolen Was Microsoft's Thunder

| The best response I've seen was from Jonathan Corbet at a panel at the Open
| Source Business Conference in San Francisco last May. Corbet is a Linux
| kernel developer himself and executive editor of the Linux Weekly News.  
| "I feel I've been called a thief," he said levelly during a panel at the
| event, and pointed out that Microsoft was one of the companies that had
| patented "thousands of trivial functions ... There's no way to write a
| nontrivial program that can't be claimed to infringe on someone's patents."
