The 2nd Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit
is coming up in just over a month from now in Austin, Texas at the University of Texas Supercomputing Center. There'll be Phoronix coverage from this collaboration summit, and with the attendees list
now online we've combed it over. As the event is still a month away, the attendance list isn't yet finalized, but we were looking at the break-down of different companies that will be in attendance -- mostly looking at the hardware companies. Below is the partial break-down of the number of representatives from each company planned for this second Linux summit.
Compare that to the same companies at the first LF Collaboration Summit:
As IBM is one of the Linux Foundation sponsors for this event, it's no surprise that they will be out in full-force. Hewlett-Packard must have missed the memo the first time around for the summit, as their attendance jumped from zero to a dozen. Dell also has a few more people on board this time around. Intel's attendance looks to have noticeably dropped as well as Google's, but they were the host
for the first summit. It was at that summit where Google announced more Linux applications coming soon
and Google's Chris DiBona took a stand for open drivers/specs from ATI and NVIDIA
At the second Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit, it looks like there will be a much greater focus on consumer hardware for Linux. Dell, Hewlett-Packard, ASUS, Acer, Everex, and Lenovo will all be talking about their adoptions of Linux. Representatives from Moblin, Open Handset Alliance
, and OpenMoko
will be talking about Linux on the mobile device front.
