The Future Market Share of Linux, Carl Turney

Linux's share of the OS market, factors affecting its future viability, issues that come to play when organisations
consider migrating or adopting a different OS platform, and steps that Linux Geeks could take to maximise growth?

Carl has an Honours in Commerce, got a Masters in Public Sector Efficiency, been the GM of two manufacturing businesses, and now run a management consultancy.

A Linux Roundup - Russell Coker

My presentation will be a series of lightning talks about various things I'm investigating, covering new Linux PC and server stuff (including ZFS) and Android.

Russell Coker does general Linux programming and systems administration. He is most well known for his work on NSA Security Enhanced Linux. Other projects he has been involved in include Bonnie++ (lead developer), Postal (lead developer), Debian (developer), Linux Security Modules (LSM) (contributor), KDE (contributor), OpenSSH (contributor)
