Linux World has come to an end and it was a busy time last week for us over here at The Linux Foundation.  In addition to attending conference sessions, manning our booth in the dot org pavilion and our internal board of directors meeting, we had the opportunity to take a break Wednesday night and hang out with some of our members, Linux World speakers and other various movers and shakers in Linux including Dan Frye and John Beauvais of IBM, Doug Fisher of Intel,  Alan Clark and Jeff Jaffe at Novell, Larry Augustin, Chris DiBona and Leslie Hawthorne from Google, Bdale Garbee at HP, Dan Kegel, Steven Vaughan-Nichols, Don Marti, the folks from Untangle, whurley from BMC and kernel developers Val Henson, Ted Ts’o and James Bottomley.

The VIP reception was held in SOMA at the Harlot Lounge, aptly named for the famous Barbary Coast ladies and paying homage to San Francisco’s colorful past.  In addition to a flowing bar, tasty hors d’oeuvres and some delightful music, we had a visit from Tux the Penguin who delighted the crowd with photo ops after a day on the trade show floor.

Thank you to all of our guests for attending!
