HP's Martin Fink's started his keynote at LinuxWorld in Boston this morning with the promise that he wouldn't deliver any of the drama that HP showed last week with its CEO Carly Fiorina ouster. It was the high point in a keynote full of lows.
By dealing out clichés like: "The GPL is what enabled Linux to earn its wings," Fink told his audience what they already knew: Linux is here to stay and Linux is ready for the enterprise.
In a rare tidbit of news that accidentally must have slipped into Fink's keynote address, he told that HP Labs will start contributing to Xen, an open source virtualisation project out of Cambridge University.
