About linux.conf.au

linux.conf.au is Australia's national Linux conference. linux.conf.au
2005 will be the sixth annual conference and will be held at the
Australian National University, Canberra, between 18-23 April
2005. The first conference in the series was held in Melbourne in 1999
(and used the name "CALU"), while the most recent was held in Adelaide
in 2004. linux.conf.au focuses on Linux technical issues - primarily
the development of Linux and other Open Source Software - so is
targeted at a technical audience. The conference has grown in stature
from year to year, attracting speakers from the international Linux
and Open Source Software communities, and sponsorship from some of the
world's leading information technology companies. Past speakers have
included Alan Cox, Jon "maddog" Hall, Rasmus Lerdorf, Dave Miller,
Andrew Morton, Rusty Russell and Andrew "Tridge" Tridgell. The two
most recent conferences have been attended by Linus Torvalds, the
creator of Linux. linux.conf.au is organised by volunteers under the
guidance of Linux Australia Inc.. For more information about

About Linux

Linux is a Unix-like operating system kernel originally created by
Linus Torvalds and released under the GNU General Public License in
1991. Since then Linux has been developed by a worldwide community of
developers, under the continuing leadership of Torvalds, into the
world's fastest growing operating system for servers.
