LinuxWorld Installfest/Kernel Hacker Sightings
By oracletechnet on Aug 08, 2007
Another LinuxWorld nearly in the books. Odd, IBM and Red Hat were not
there (for second year in a row I think, in Red Hat's case at least).
IMO this show, perhaps more dramatically than any other, LW has left
its geeky, grass-roots origins for a much more corporate position (sort
of like Linux itself, actually).
The highlight was
the presence of several of Oracle's Linux kernel hackers/engineers at
the "Oracle on Linux Experience" on Wednesday afternoon (a glorified
installfest really) - Mark Fasheh (OCFS2
maintainer), Joel Becker (ASMLib),
Sergio Leunissen (Unbreakable
Linux Network, and one of Oracle Apex's original developers),
and Van Okamura (Oracle
Validated Configurations). This was a great treat for
attendees, and we got most of it on video. (Don't worry, we'll share
that when available!)
