London's Olympia will this year play host to the LinuxUser & Developer Expo 2004 - the UK's definitive Linux forum taking place on 20 and 21 April. The Expo is, of course, organised by LinuxUser & Developer magazine.

Highlight of the event will be a gala awards bash - The LinuxUser & Developer Awards (20 April) - to recognise the Linux industry's very best in product and service solutions - as well as corporate and personal contributions to the cause. The awards are this year supported by OpenForum Europe.

An elite panel of eight judges will preside over the proceedings, and select winners in 12 categories:

  • Best Open Source Project

  • Best Server Application

  • Best Linux Developer Tool

  • Best Data Storage Solution

  • Best Desktop Application

  • Best Business Solution Provider

  • Best ISP/Internet Host

  • Best Embedded Linux

  • Best User of CGI with Linux

  • Best Desktop Environment

  • Best Linux System Builder

  • Best Linux Marketing Campaign

There are also five awards up for grabs in the following LinuxUser & Developer reader-nominated categories:

  • Best Linux Distribution

  • Best Linux Hardware

  • Best Linux Software

  • Corporate Contribution to Linux

  • Individual Contribution to Linux

If you'd like to put forward a worthy candidate for any of the above, you can do so

. The deadline for submissions is Friday 26 March.



And finally, the open source gurus charged with this unenviable task of choosing the laureates are:

  • Keir Thomas - Editor, LinuxUser & Developer

  • Richard Hillesley - Consultant Editor, LinuxUser & Developer

  • Graham Taylor - Director, OpenForum Europe

  • Mike Banahan - CTO, OpenForum Europe

  • Jono Bacon, Author and Linux expert

  • Alastair Kergon - UKUUG (UK Unix User Group)

  • Peter Hayes - Manager, UK, OSDL

  • Daniel James - Linux journalist

  • Frank Pohlman - Linux journalist

Marvellous. It's certainly an open source love-in on a grand scale and guaranteed fun for all the family. For full details on what else is happening at LinuxUser & Developer Expo 2004, click
