The Linux Foundation says it will hold its first End-User Summit on October 13-14.
The event will be held at the Desmond Tutu Center, which despite its name is an Aramark joint, recently opened a mile southeast of the Javits Center on the West Side.
The target is businesses which are heavy users of Linux and open source in their enterprise computing systems.
So no surprise its first keynote will be from Novell CEO Ron Hovsepian, with a Q&A moderated by Foundation executive director Jim Zemlin.
Other features include a panel with key Linux maintainers, a panel of large users, and a presentation of the Linux Weather Forecast, designed to keep users up-to-date on coming changes to the kernel.
So, you going? Autumn in New York...maybe you can catch a Mets play-off game (as if that's going to happen).
