We've known about this since April at the last Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit when this event was in planning stage, but today the Linux Foundation has announced their first end-user summit.

FOSDEM was a week and a half ago, but the SD card containing a few extra pictures just turned up. The first main talk that occurred at FOSDEM was on the major growth of Linux within the motion picture industry and Hollywood. Linux is now the primary operating system being used in the render farms and post-production environments. In this talk by Robin Rowe and Gabrielle Pantera, this duo had discussed how Linux managed to succeed in this industry and one of the reasons was because of NVIDIA and their hardware support under Linux via their binary drivers.
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.
For those interested, all of the X.Org "DevRoom" talks are available online for video download from RadeonHD.org.

The videos can be downloaded in Ogg Theora format from this video link.
Michael Meeuwisse of Project VGA, which spawned from the Open Graphics Project for creating a truly open-source graphics card, announced today at FOSDEM 2008 that next month he hopes to ship the first of his prototype graphics cards. However, before you get your hopes up, this is a very low-end graphics card. The current Project VGA board has 16MB of SD RAM, Xilinx Spartan 3 s400 FPGA under 100MHz, and uses the PCI bus. These first-run prototypes will cost over $200 USD with no guarantees to work or warranties. Meeuwisse at least has been able to secure an order of the first batch of graphics cards from his university. All of the Project VGA work -- including the hardware information -- is available under the GNU GPLv3.
