On the road again…

So over the last week I’ve been on the road with IBM and Red Hat on their Linux on the desktop roadshow. It has been pretty interesting! I am speaking about Linux and Open Source generally, how to create a strategy and providing a vendor neutral perspective to balance the Red Hat and IBM perspectives. Microsoft have really shot themselves in the foot with Vista, it is making loads of quite conservative IT buyers look at Linux seriously 🙂


The events have been pretty good and I’ve had a chance to catch up with friends all over the country 🙂 Tonight is dinner with some of the Linux SA crew, and then tomorrow is dinner with PLUG in Perth.

Brisbane was fun, I saw Elspeth and Stephen Thorne which was great! In Melbourne I stayed with Donna and Peter who are always fun, and had a lovely dinner with a few extra friends. Unfortunately both taxis I took in Melbourne had really racist drivers, so they got an earful.


While I was in Canberra I stayed with Rusty and Alli in their beautiful “new” place outside of Canberra. Check out the photos below! They have horses, dogs, cats and bandwidth! 😉

One thought on “On the road again…”

  1. Sorry to have missed out on dinner tonight, Pia! It’s just as well I went home though … had to deal with flat batteries and other domestic emergencies!

    Enjoyed your session today.
