| For the second time in a row, CeBIT will be

| open source. The event will be supported by 
| international industry associations and 
| representative bodies such as the Linux 
| Foundation, Linux International, the Free 
| Software Foundation Europe and the LIVE Linux 
| Association. The Open Source Forum will serve 
| as the lively hub of the exhibition, which in 
| turn features a diverse range of open source 
| companies and independent projects. 


Watching the Sun Set

,----[ Quote ]
| I joined Sun in 1989, fresh from a System 
| Administration job at Manchester University. I 
| was so excited. Finally, I was going to get 
| the chance to see the inside of "real" UNIX ! 
| No more Minix hacking for me, I was finally 
| going to get the chance to see and work on the 
| source code for a real UNIX operating system. 
| I wasn't disappointed. It was incredibly 
| sophisticated, with a virtual memory system, a 
| working network file system (NFS) and a state 
| of the art graphical user interface (SunView). 
| It was one of the most advanced systems 
| available at the time.

| Britta WÃlfing, CeBIT Event Manager, the
| shift of the Open Source exhibition to the
