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.
