Can we have a clarification here? The term "linux developer conf" - do
you refer to developers of Linux, or to developers who use Linux?
There is a substantial difference. People like David Campbell, who
developed the parallel port drivers, which were used for the Iomega Zip
Drives, are different to people who develop web sites using
Perl/PHP/Java and PostgreSQL/MySQL, etc, running on Linux.
