Linux

As the Southern California Linux Expo (SCALE) prepares to kick-off February 20 in Los Angeles, The VAR Guy did some preliminary poking around. He wanted to see if there were any key trends worth nothing for open source solutions providers. The result? Take a look at these three anticipated trends and themes from SCALE.

1. Canonical’s Relatively Low Profile: Community manager Jono Bacon is expected to attend, local Canonical employees may attend and Ubuntu fans will participate in an Ubuntu Bug Jam. But a Canonical spokesman says the company won’t likely announce any Ubuntu news at the event.

Stay tuned for the server and Lanscape initiatives this spring.
