DesktopLinux.com drops support for Lindows Desktop Linux Summit
DesktopLinux.com is withdrawing our support for the Desktop Linux Summit originated by Lindows.com. We were approached by Lindows.com during the LinuxWorld conference last summer, with a request to provide a "platform" that could bring a vendor-neutral character to the conference. It was our impression that Lindows.com felt the conference was not drawing broad enough support from the Desktop Linux community and its vendors, and that they wanted to create a greater sense of vendor-neutrality by associating the conference with DesktopLinux.com.
