LinuxWorld organiser IDG World Expo is expecting 6,000 to 7,000 delegates to attend the first edition of the event in Boston this week.
The Boston edition comes in addition to other LinuxWorld events in North America in New York and San Francisco. The fact that the inaugural event draws such a respectable crowd, shows yet again that Linux and open source have reached maturity.
Novell CEO Jack Messman will deliver the opening keynote on Tuesday morning. Other keynote speakers include CEO Jack Swainson of Computer Associates, Martin Fink, vice president Linux for HP and Marten Mickos, CEO of MySQL.
