The LinuxCon and CloudOpen 2012 conference held in San Diego last week were an epic success. Three days of keynotes and technical sessions from leaders in Linux, open source technologies and cloud computing sparked new conversations online in the days during and after the event.
Let's talk about a touchy subject: the Linux desktop. It's touchy because, by any reasonable measure, Linux on the desktop has yet to capture a significant market share of the desktop and portable PC platform. This has to be said, right up front.
Earlier this week I wrote about the VIP/speaker gift we're giving away at LinuxCon Europe (Twitter hashtag: #linuxcon) and shared with the community how anyone could win their own Linux Futbol Club soccer jersey (make sure to read that story, you could still win if you comment).
I also mentioned the co-located events taking place at LinuxCon Europe.
I have tried loading Bodhi Linux without success. I used the same disk on another desktop computer running a Pentium 4 with success. After loading Bodhi I tried Ubuntu with success and then loaded Lubuntu which is currently running. Its great. I am very happy with this setup on the desktop computer. If only I could get it to run on the Sony Vaio.
