         *** New York Linux Users Group October Meeting ***

JON "MADDOG" HALL - The Godfather of Linux

Wed. 9/20/99
6:30-8:30pm
IBM Building
590 Madison Avenue (at 57th St.)
check in at lobby for badge and room number

Linux International is a non-profit organization comprised of the major
Linux vendors, developers, and users; that distributes information
and promotes the use of Linux worldwide. One look at the Who's Who at LI
is staggering: www.li.org. Many of the famous Linux hackers you've
heard about participate in LI in some way. 

Jon "maddog" Hall is the Executive Director of Linux International and
is formerly of Compaq Computer Corporation in the Digital UNIX Marketing
Group. It was his initiative - giving Linus Torvalds a DEC ALpha
as a gift - that prompted Linus to port the kernel to the 64bit Alpha
platform. A UNIX hacker at heart, Maddog also authored the well-known book
"Linux for Dummies" and is also the godfather of Linus' children. When not
he's not spreading the seeds of Linux for us at speaking engagements
around the world, maddog makes time to marry people in his alternate role
as an ordained minister in the Universal Life Church and Justice of the
Peace in the State of New Hampshire.

This is a good meeting for Linux beginners, business people, and anyone
looking for an introductory discussion about Linux technology and the
Linux industry.

		       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.
