Research Triangle Park, NC--March 23 1998--The Linux Operating System is making waves in the news, and now is the opportunity for the world to find out why. Get ready for the largest gathering of the best and brightest minds in the computer world--all there to discuss Linux! For three business-centered and technology-packed days, May 28-30, the fourth annual Linux Expo will take over Duke University in Durham, NC.

This year's Linux Expo is a can't-miss event. Make plans now to visit the record number of Expo exhibitors showing the latest in Linux-based hardware, software, and service solutions. And stop in on the business and technical discussions to hear talks by some of the most important names in technology today. From Alan Cox on porting Linux to the Macintosh to Darryl Strauss on the use of Digital Domain's Linux rendering farm in "Titanic" to Jon 'maddog' Hall on Linux around the world to Linus Torvalds, the original developer of the Linux kernal and the Expo's keynote speaker, the Linux Expo has something for everyone.

In addition to the hardware, software, component and applications vendors, the Linux Expo will also have a Quake Fest, Games Forum, Editor Wars, and an Email Garden. Tutorial sessions with top Linux developers will also prove to be a large draw at the Expo.
