The show was very busy and there wasn't one person there that I spoke to who regretted coming, although many commented on the size. We all agreed that the show was much smaller than we had expected (see Figure 1).
It also wasn't a show that had a lot of people wondering what all the fuss was about.

At this show, everybody I spoke to (attendees and exhibitors alike) were either already avid users or were seriously investigating products that would enable them to migrate to the Linux platform.
