    Oh, how I wish I were attending Linux world. . .

    It was either attend or buy a Linux rackmount system for my home office. What would you have picked?

    Mmmmm, dual processor, 512MBytes RAM, 108GBytes space, and 2 NICs.

Great Results!

    YES! This poll shows that the results... vaguely resemble an obscene gesture! Way to go!

      hehe, somebody should write some code that queries different polls around the net looking for this type of outcome. It could be similar to the Sucks vs Rules meter.
        It should search for this criteria:
      • Polls should have 4 or 5 choices.
      • Results for questions 2-3 ( or 4) should be greater than questions 1 and 4 ( or 5)
      • Of these results there should be a single result that is significantly larger. Probably 50% on a four question poll?

      Now that could go in to the Cool Uses For Perl.

    I won't go there because
    1. I can't afford it.
    2. My boss won't let me go.
    3. I don't use Linux. I prefer FreeBSD.
    4. I don't even know where it takes place. :)
      I'm lucky :) I just went up to my boss today and said "I'm going to be out tomorrow" he didn't even want to know why.

      In reference to #3: The BSD people got everybody at LinuxWorld wearing horns. I'm not kidding. (Maybe I'll post a picture of the back of my head tonight.)
        What shocked me was everyone wearing badges that would try to flip over and say BSD...

    I wont attend Linuxworld for the same reason I wont visit the local Perl mongers: I would rather not travel out somewhere when "virtual conferencing" seems good enough?
    How about people from remote places like Africa and Europe and China? It's just not fair to keep holding physical conferences.
      For some people, virtual conferencing is not enough. I know I'd rather have a real ice cream sundae than to just download a picture of one!
