It would have been nice to see what the criteria was for these awards. That is, I would have liked to see what aspects of the product were considered and even why each product was rated the way it was, especially in comparison to the other products. Or maybe I missed it.

No HP at LinuxWorld this year so no 'Best of Show' for them, or for Sun. Or for Microsoft or for Oracle. Looks like LinuxWorld Boston is on its last legs.

I was surprised at how few attendees there were; maybe it had to do with being the last day of the conference. Those at the booths seemed a little desperate to get rid of their free t-shirts and pens.

I'm probably naive to think this odd, but whereas Red Hat had a large, multi-section booth in front, Fedora was tucked away in the back. Are they pretending that they're not related, at least when having company over?

LinuxWorld didn't have enough exhibitors to fill up the floor, and many booth operators looked like they needed more to do.

Brian Proffit & Amy Newman's verdict: "What's the real draw of LinuxWorld? It's clearly no longer a developer/community show. One executive told us he thinks it should be a show for the customers. He might have a point. The question is, can IDG create the kind of energy and program to attract those Linux customers in?"

okay so maybe they weren't there, Sun & co, but some things *never* change at LinuxWorld: Bruce Perens was there, still striving to convince the community that it's time to challenge the patent system...

Two email products won awards in different categories, which I found a bit unusual. Maria Winslow, one of the judges, posted a blog entry about the process. View link: http://winslow.linuxworld.com/linuxworld_conference_awards.htm

I was surprised to see that attendance at this show was not up to the usual LinuxWorld standards.

There was no PHP or Zend booth, nothing from Debian, Mandriva or Mozilla.

It would have been good to see IBM, Sun, and HP at this show; do we know why they boycotted it this year???

What a coup for Mono!!
