LinuxCon 2016

Tomorrow Linux will turn 25.

There is a LinuxCon event in Toronto and I decided to visit it and see Linus’ keynote. What a disappointment was as per schedule it suppose to be like 10 minutes long. On top of that they asked me to register and pay $100. I will pay… but some other time (never). I am not interested in corporate drones there and their containers (most of the topics of the conference). VMware, HP, IBM and surprise Microsoft and Citrix (WTF). MS even has a keynote. Some memberships are $1100 – good luck with that. I don’t make my living with Linux or containers. That explains why Linux desktop is going nowhere – there is no money in it (for FSF).

Looks like this is my first and last Linux conference. Too bad it is my OS of choice for a long time and I love it.
