1Linux Goes to Hollywood for Inaugural Open Source Summit
The Linux Foundation held its inaugural Open Source Summit North America conference, the successor to the long running LinuxCon, from Sept. 11-14 in Los Angeles. One of the highlights of the event was an on-stage conversation with Linux creator Linus Torvalds, who made a plea to hackers to become Linux developers instead of going to the dark side. Hollywood actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt also was on the keynote stage, talking about his collaborative movie-making startup HitRecord, which follows community patterns that are common in open-source software development. Attendees of the event were also treated to an event in the Paramount Studios lot in Hollywood. In this slide show, eWEEK looks at some of the highlights of the Open Source Summit.
2Linus Torvalds Still Having Fun Working on Linux
Linus Torvalds told the Open Source Summit audience that he’s really happy that he gets to work on something that is meaningful. While Torvalds is world-renowned, he noted that his actual working environment is anything but glamorous. “I work from my home office in a bathrobe. It’s not a glamorous life,” Torvalds said.
