On its debut in Berlin the LinuxTag came to a successful conclusion on Saturday with a final attendance of 9,600. For four days the exhibition halls at the Berlin Funkturm were the meeting place for users, experts and others with a particular interest in Linux and in free and open source software from all over Europe, Asia, Africa and North America.
Reactions to the first LinuxTag to be held in the German capital were remarkably positive: 94 per cent of those questioned obtained a good or very good overall impression of the event. In addition, some 85 per cent were also satisfied with the commercial results of their attendance at this trade show. The extensive program of conventions and papers was assessed positively by nine out of ten of those questioned. The relocation to Berlin met with the approval of around 82 per cent of the visitors polled. Over 90 per cent declared their intention of attending the next LinuxTag in Berlin.
With more than 80 exhibiting free projects LinuxTag is the most important platform for Open-Source-Projects worldwide, where several world premieres like the release of Fedora Core 7 were celebrated.
