Tonight live on the LInux Show: Microsoft's festering wounds

Jeff Gerhardt writes: Tuesday, March 26th, 2002, from the home of Wayne's World, Aurora, IL, tonight LIVE on www.thelinuxshow.com at 6pm pt, 7pm mt, 8pm ct, and 9pm et Kevin Hill, Jeff Gerhardt, Doc Searls (Linux Journal), Arne Flones and Russ Pavlicek have another CLASSIC show lined up tonight on The Linux Show!!

In Segment One - Hot News: We will be covering the hot Linux news of the last few weeks. In particular we will talk about Michael Tiemann testifying against MICROSOFT.

In Segment Two- Introducing The Open Technology Consortium (GeekPAC) or A more aggressive step at securing our future.

Tonight we ask the listeners indulge us a bit as we introduce our New Political Action Committee The Open Technology Consortium. We will have a URL available for users to review our initial Position Statement by ShowTime. The need for such a PAC should be obvious.

It has become apparent. Regardless of the efforts the founding members of the PAC have attempted to use to influence the outcome of political events that impact the mixed communities of; the Open Source development community, the Internet and ISP communities, the Linux community and the "non-Microsoft centric" portion of the general IT community; that those efforts have failed.

It is now time to take a more aggressive, attack direct to the seat of power in Washington DC. The creation of this PAC is to effect a sense of UNITY between several technology communities, and allow a common reference to carry a diverse message.

In Segment Three- Book Corner Learning Red Hat Linux 7.2

Time permitting Jeff will review the new O'Rielly book by Bill McCarty Learning Red Hat Linux (ver 7.2). This is a fabulous introduction to linux and is framed for easy understanding by they typical Windows user (who has a basic clue).

Remember tune in at 6pm pt, 7pm mt, 8pm ct, and 9pm et.
