A Good Day at LOTS

LOTS is over. This very first event on Open Source in Switzerland was interesting, well organised, and the atmosphere simmilar to Linuxtag.

I was most impressed by the talk of Wolfgang Maass on the potentials of Open Source for the enterprise market. He presented some conclusions from a research analysing the oppinions of several CIOs. Most astonishing, he said that licensing is not really an cost issue for CIOs, they are rather concerned with being independent from a unique vendor. I am looking forward to find his slides on the LOTS Website.

Some pictures are available online in the LOTS 2004 Album. On the LOTS Website, there are some more pictures. Chregu also has a brief report on LOTS.
