Amanda McPherson's post "How to Survive LinuxCon" made me realize that conferences is less than six weeks away. While there is a lot of excitement around Linus Torvalds speaking at LinuxCon, there are several other great sessions.
Of course, you'll want to listen to Bob Sutor's keynote "Regarding Clouds, Mainframes, and Desktops ... and Linux" on opening day, as well as Mark Shuttleworth's keynote and final session of the conference "Let's Get Together: Coordinated Software Releases, The Linux Ecosystem and the Impact on the Global Marketplace."

I'm also looking forward to the following sessions because they focus on the realities of Linux and open source, beyond the hype.
