The Linux Foundation has announced an end-user summit, which will take place in New York in October.

The foundation's End User Collaboration Summit, announced on Wednesday, is scheduled for 13-14 October. It is being billed as "the first event of its kind to bring together high-performance end users with the highest-level Linux community developer".

The first morning of the conference, in particular, will have a strong focus on Linux in the enterprise, including a panel discussion on the evolution of Linux in business, and a question-and-answer session with representatives of Novell and Red Hat.

Interested parties can apply for an invitation through the Linux Foundation website.
