Ubuntu Live right around the corner!

I got this in my inbox a few moments ago…

The inaugural Ubuntu Live Conference is only a few days away!
We’re looking forward to an exciting and dynamic conference, with
intriguing and thought-provoking presentations, lots of networking
opportunities, fun events, and much more. Below is information to help you
get the most out of your time at Ubuntu Live.

Well, it looks like Ubuntu Live is coming right up and I’m REALLY excited to be going thanks to Phoronix for the pass! I am looking forward to meeting Michael (the keeper of Phoronix) and asking him, among other things, where exactly the name Phoronix came from.

I’m still looking for input on what sessions people recommend that I go to. It turns out that I have a Sunday/Monday pass but no pass for Tuesday’s “Lesson Sessions.”

It’s been three months since switching (cold I might add) to Linux from WindowsXP. I still boot into XP on the very rare occasion that I need to retrieve something very specific (like a number out of my MS Fax console) and I have to say, Ubuntu is what did it for me.

I just hope I’m not the only noob there…

    As mentioned @ http://www.phoronix.com/?page=contact#about Phoronix is a combination of the prefix “phoro-” for movement and root “*NIX” to offer a meaning close to “Linux movement”.
