Linux International is pleased to announce, in line with its stated 
goals of promoting Linux, that we will be attending the Open Systems 
World / FedUNIX show at the end of November.  The show, which is held in 
Washington DC, provides Linux International with an opportunity to 
show-case Linux to software developers, managers, and government and 
commercial analysts.

The Open Systems World / FedUNIX show is the only exposition in the 
Washington DC area dedicated to Unix and open systems.  The exposition 
is both a trade show and a conference.

                         The Trade Show

51,800 square feet of exhibits & demonstrations!  Over 125 vendors 

Open Systems World/FedUNIX offers the only exposition in the Washington 
area dedicated to UNIX and open systems. The vendors make an extra 
effort to staff their booths with people who can answer technical 
questions -- because they recognize the unique competence of the FedUNIX 
and Open Systems World Conference Audience.  There is simply no better 
or faster way to get to know the key UNIX and open systems vendors and 
their products. 

. . . and it's all FREE! 


A total of nine conferences will be held during the week and these 
include the Federal Open Systems Conference: Building the Electronic 
Government, Motif/COSE International Users Conference, Novell AppWare 
Developers Conference, SCO Interoperability Conference, Solaris 
Developers Conference, Windows NT Developers Conference, Linux 
International Users and Developers Conference, World Wide Web/Mosaic 
Conference.  As well there are 20 full day tutorials in Motif, UNIX, 
SysAdmin, Networking, Internet, Linux, and Client/Server technologies.

The Linux Journal are proudly hosting the "Linux International Users 
Conference" and have arranged an impressive arrange of speakers for 
their conference.

The event starts on Monday the 28th November and finishes on Friday the 
2nd December.  The "Linux International Users Conference" will be on the 
Thursday and Friday, Decmber 1-2.

The Linux International booth in the main exhibition hall will provide 
Linux International with the opportunity of informing attendees on the 
benefits that Linux has to offer and provide information on Linux and 
commercial products that are available for it.  With over 10,000 
attendees expected at the event, we are confident that this is a good 
opportunity of increasing Linux's exposure.

Linux International would like to welcome Linux users to the event.  
Come up and see us at the stand.  Get to know us.  Have a look at all
the other booths and exhibitions.

Opportunities also exist for people who would like to help man our 
booth.  We unfortunately have a few vacancies where the stand will be 
under-staffed.  We have worked hard to arrange our booth at the event
and it would be a shame if we were sometimes unable to attend to
everyone visiting the booth.  Anyone attending the event (or even
thinking of attending) are most welcome to sit in the booth and help
out.  If anyone is interested in doing this, please contact Linux
International asap (

There are a number of companies that will be promoting Linux at the 
event including the Linux Journal and ACC Bookstores.  Together we 
intend to put on a good show for Linux.  We encourage anyone in the area 
to drop by.

[ Moderator's note: My apologies for taking so long to send this out.
  Hope it reaches someone in time.  --liw ]

We've received a large number of requests for further information on
the Open Systems World / FedUNIX show which will be held in Washington DC
at the end of November.  While we've answered all those requests
personally, others may also be interested in further details.

Open Systems World / FedUNIX is billed as the only conference and trade
show serving the open systems community in the government and private
sector.  This is the 6th year of Open Systems World and it just keeps
getting bigger and better.  Open Systems World is actually two events
in one - a tradeshow exposition and a week long array of conferences.

The tradeshow operates on the 30th November and the 1st December from
10am to 4pm.  Entry is free.  There are over 125 vendors who will be
exhibiting products at the event and some of these include:

ACC Bookstores		AT&T			Cucumber
Digital			Federal Computer Week	Hewlett-Packard
Hummingbird		IBM			ICS
Island			Legent			Linux International
Linux Journal		Microsoft		NCD
Novell			Oracle			Performix
Quarterdeck		SCO			SUN
SunSoft			Sybase			Tektronix
Uniplex			VisionWare		Washington Technology

Linux International will also be present at the tradeshow and will be
promoting Linux from our booth.  We aim to alert the many managers,
software developers, engineers, and end-users who will be attending the
event on the benefits that Linux has to offer and on the wide-array of
commercial products available for Linux.  This will be a good opportunity
to demonstrate to these influential people that Linux can run with the
best of them.

In addition, the Linux Journal, ACC Corp, and Cucumber Bookstores will
also be exhibiting Linux and Linux-related products at the event.  The
Linux Journal will be promoting Linux and the magazine to subscribers
and advertisers, Cucumber Bookstores will be selling several Linux
products, and ACC Corp will be selling Linux CD's, applications and
books.  Together, we're all confident of showing the world just how
powerful Linux really is.

The week long array of conferences start on the 28th November and finish
on the 2nd December.  There are a wide variety of conferences to choose
from and these include:

*  The First Annual Linux Conference

*  Novell AppWare Developers Conference
*  SCO Interoperability Conference
*  Solaris Developers Conference

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State

UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO vs IBM.
