LinuxWorld 2008: Enthusiasm Up, Attendance Down - Welcome
It was apparent early on that this was not going to be a sold-out LinuxWorld Conference & Expo at San Francisco's Moscone Center. Malaise in the macroeconomy and general travel difficulties were generally thought to be the culprits. Only 7,500 people registered, and perhaps half that number actually showed up. LinuxWorld has attracted up to 15,000 in past years.
