IconCheck inside for our photo review of this year's LinuxWorld. In short, Novell rocked the show, while Red Hat and Sun were missing completely! We think that there were fewer people visiting this year... However, we got to see the new PalmSource ALP OS, we chatted with Motorola about their Linux SDK's state of affairs and more!

Special thanks to Vincent Queru for the pictures!


Chander Kant, CEO of Zmanda and LinuxCertified, and I. Recently, Zmanda extended its Amanda Backup enterprise support while it has been selected to join Novell's Market Start program for innovative open source companies. Amanda Enterprise will now be available on SUSE Linux Enterprise 10.


Corey Burger and Jorge Castro at the Gnome booth with their "Golden Penguin Bowl" trophy. "We kicked Novell's a$$ at the competition last night", they told us...


Corey Burger shows us a live Userful desktop, a lock-down version of Gnome (great solution for kiosks).



Our good online friend Ben Rockwood at the OpenSolaris pavilion. Check out his beast server, with 12 Terrabytes of storage (can go up to 24TB). With ZFS it's very easy to maintain it rather with other available solutions, he said.


The Xandros booth.


The FreeBSD booth. Matt Olander told us how fast their PC-BSD CDs were going away! Everyone wants a FreeBSD desktop version it seems!


Representatives from webScurity and StoneSoft, special guests at IBM's pavilion. They provide advanced firewall solutions.


The Fedora Project guys! The single Red Hat employee was to be found at the Fedora's booth. They showed us the new default icon theme for the upcoming Fedora, called Echo. They were running Fedora Core on an Intel MacMini and it worked perfectly, even ACPI "sleep" worked well.
