In order to enable potential private and industrial
users to work successfully with Linux and obtain access
to Internet, the German Unix User's Group (GUUG) will
stage a congress on the subject of "Linux & Internet:
Power for Practice" in Heidelberg on June 30th and July
1st 1994. Contributers and developers will talk about
their work and be available for talk and discussion.

Linux & Internet: Power for Practice

In daily life and in the world of business, the rapid
and reliable exchange of information of all kinds is
becoming increasingly important. Even now, telephone
and telefax are reaching their limits. The direct
networking of computer systems in a wide area network
such as Internet open up undreamed-of possibilities.
This network now connects over 20 million users
worldwide and is fast becomimg the basis of a market
economy in the global network, a "matrix".

Internet made the worldwide distribution and
development of a complete operating system such as
Linux possible for the first time. This freely
available UNIX clone is going the right way to become a
serious alternative to commercial products such as SCO
Unix or Interactive Unix, a process which may have come
as a surprise to the Finnish initiator and principal
developer Linus Torvalds. Linux is compatible with the
POSIX standard, possesses all the important qualities
of standard commercially available UNIX systems
(Multitasking, TCP/IP, X11) and runs with great
efficiency on standard PCs with 386, 486 or Pentium
processors.

On June 30th and July 1st 1994, the German Unix User's
Group (GUUG) will stage a congress under the motto
"Linux & Internet: Power for Practice". Final support
for the congress will come from Fachbuchhandlung J.F.
Lehmanns and Lunetix Softfair, both at home in Berlin,
and the publishing house Springer Verlag, Heidelberg.
Others responsible for organizing the event are the
Linux Support Team in Erlangen, the EUnet GmbH in
Dortmund, The Akademische Software Kooperation in
Karlsruhe and the iX Multiuser Multitasking Magazine in
Hannover.

The congress targets all interested EDP experts and
decision-makers. Its aim is to present to the public at
large the hitherto little-known potential of Internet
and of the Linux operating system. Both technologies
are equally interesting for private users and their
counterparts in the commercial sphere.

The congress will take place on the premises of the
German Cancer Research Centre in Heidelberg. The space
available makes it necessary to limit the number of
participants to 350 persons.  Those wishing to take
part are advised to apply in good time.

The whole first day of the congress will be geared to
Linux. Linux developers of renown such as Linus
Torvalds himself, Dirk Hohndel (The XFree86 Project,
Inc.), Remy Card (Extended-2 Filesystem) and Bob
Amstadt (WINE project) will be present and will be
available for questions and talks before and after
their lectures. 

On the second day, potential Internet users will gain
insights into the technical and commercial aspects of
connection to Internet. Experts such as Prof. Gerhard
Schneider from the University of Karlsruhe, Rainer
Klute from the University of Dortmund or Prof. Lange
from the University of Clausthal will be available for
the purpose. 

The agenda for the second day will also include two
three-hour tutorials and a forum aiming principally at
developers and system administrators. These are
restricted to 50 participants. Tutorial 1 will be
entitled "Internet Security and Cryptography". The
tutorial will go into aspects of security under Linux
and other systems (speaker: Theodore Ts'o, language:
English).


The subject of the second tutorial will be the Windows
Emulator WINE and the corresponding development
environment. WINE allows the user to run MS-Windows
applications directly under Linux. In conjunction with
the C libraries, C source texts for MS-Windows under
Linux can, without the necessity for fundamental
changes, be translated into binaries running directly
under the X Window System (speaker: Bob Amstadt,
language: English). 

The tutorials will be followed by a forum attended by
the Linux developers. The discussion will deal with the
future development of Linux as well as aspects from the
field of software development and portation under
Linux. (Language: English). 

For the entire duration of the congress, the speakers
will be available for demonstrations on suitable
computers. The congress will have its own special
ISDN-based Internet connection. 

All lectures and tutorials will be published in book
form after the congress. There will also be a congress
CD with approx. 650 Mbytes of freeware from the field
of Unix/Linux/Internet. Congress participants will
receive this CD free of charge. 

The congress is basically a non-profit event, but
admission is not free: for both days, it will be 300 DM
for professionals and 100 DM for students. For one day
only, the admission fee will be 180 DM and 60 DM
respectively. The two three-hour tutorials will go into
more detail and are therefore rather more expensive:
admission here will cost 600 DM. 

In order to promote free software, any money left over
will go to selected freeware projects. Suggestions can
be made via E-Mail to po...@germany.eu.net or by mail
to 

German Unix Users' Group
Elsenheimerstr. 43
D-80687 Munich
Germany

or to

Fachbuchhandlung J.F. Lehmanns
Hardenbergstr. 11
D-14191 Berlin
Germany

A jury made up of members of the public will make a
selection from the suggestions sent in.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO v IBM.
