Subject: Linus Torvalds to speak at New Orleans DECUS Symposium

Approved: (Matt Welsh)

On Thursday, May 12th, in New Orleans, attendees at the Spring 1994 DECUS
(Digital Equipment Users Society) US Chapter symposium will have an opportunity
to hear 2 presentations by Linus Torvalds, the "father of the Linux operating
system". These sessions, entitled "An Introduction to Linux" and
"Implementation Issues in LINUX", are scheduled from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm. They
are being presented as a part of the week-long UNIX session stream, and will
offer a unique opportunity to hear Linus speak, outside of Scandinavia. In
addition to the two technical sessions, the UNIX SIG hopes to have a Linux
system running in the UNIX/AI SIG Campground, and hopefully we can persuade
Linus to "hang out there".

For additional information, or to register, call 1-800-DECUS55. In addition,
information is available via the Internet through DECUS' gopher client at, via anonymous FTP at, or sending mail to If you like, you can also send mail to the Chairman of
the UNIX SIG (Kurt Reisler) at (that's me :)

Hope to see many of you there.

		       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 vs IBM.
