With respect, I disagree: Linux is not the forefather of open source
(possibly Sendmail is), it is the poster-boy. I doubt anybody with a
keen interest in, let us say, WordPress, would be confused by a
WordPress event being sponsored or run by LA. Similarly, I dare say I
am not alone in that I would think less of a Linux aficionado objecting
to a WordPress event being run by LA.
