I know that you are not the correct address to send this type of request to,
but in looking for an appropriate mailing-list, I have yet to see one that
fits best. Can you suggest one?
My name is Scott C. Kennedy and I am on the board of director's
for BEACH L.I.S.A - the San Diego System Administrators Group.
BEACH L.I.S.A. will be having a special meeting in May to discuss
the various UNIX implementations available for the Intel x86
platform. I'd like to see if I can arrange for a local representative
for your Unix implementation to speak. If you cannot provide one,
please let me know if you have a consultant in the area who is
willing to speak on your behalf.
Each speaker will be asked to give a 10 min presentation on their
implementation, they are free to say anything they like during their
presentation, but I'd suggest staying within the realms of good taste.
(ie. no competitor bashing)
After the presentations, we will have a Q&A period which will allow the
audience to ask questions.
Here's the excerpt from our Web Page.
War of the Intel Unixes
Experts from the partisian camps of BSD, Linux and Solaris,
all on Intel, will square off in a panel discussion of who
has the better Unix. Perhaps the only thing they'll agree
on is that any of them are better than Microsoft Windows.
The meeting will start at 7pm and is expected to end about 9pm. The
meeting facilites will be the Qualcomm Auditorium, which seats
approximately 300 people. Video projectors, whiteboards, slide
projectors, overhead transparencies, and LCD projectors will be
available for use. Please let us know which you may need and I
will make sure they are prepared for you.
So far, I have tentative commitments from
Solaris x86 - SunSoft or a local SE/CE
Linux - Local Linux User group
BSDI - Joe Austin
SCO Unix - Unknown
Included is the timeline. I hope that you can arrange for someone to attend.
