LinuxWorld Conference & Expo Ends!

After three days of exhibits, LinuxWorld Conference & Expo wraps up.

Linux is definitely getting a boost with recent events. August's LinuxWorld Conference & Expo gathered 237% more visitors than the March LinuxWorld.

Many new companies and products were showcased, including new distributions such as Corel Linux and Storm Linux. The Dot Org pavilion was a big hit, gathering many of the Linux community's most prominent members.

Red Hat's IPO was one of the lively topics discussed at the conference. Red Hat's stock stormed out of the gates at IPO day on Wednesday, and Thursday saw continued growth for the stock. This success really shows that Linux is a hot topic in the Linux community.
