I think we need Linux World like a whole in the head at this point.
IDG has run the show into the ground and none of the big names come to the
expo any longer. Instead of a 'Linux Show", maybe we can organize a
Free Software Expo hosted by the .ORG pavillion :)
We might be able to then put the show back on track, and give businesses
and individuals a clear eyed view of Free Software without the marketing
