1) in 1999, the main users of linux were technical users. Hence the
'users' part was correct.
2) Now the 'users' category is quite different to 'developers'.
3) User conf, developer tech conf and tradeshow can be different things.
This was a point of discussion (and has been before).
4) It is linux.conf.au (or Linux.conf.au, or Linux.Conf.Au - depending
who is arguing it). The NZ thing just makes it interesting.
5) LCA will be where the best bid comes from. Anybody who did not put in
a serious bid cannot complain.
6) It is better to have a great conf than to have crappy one but in some
place that's defined by idealism.
7) LCA in NZ is going to ROCK!
