Microsoft to deliver Unix conference keynote

Filed under
Microsoft

Microsoft will use a massive gathering of Unix, Linux and open-source professionals in Sydney next week to demonstrate interoperability between Unix and Windows systems.

The software behemoth's attendance at the annual conference of the Australian Unix and Open Systems Users Group (AUUG) follows on from a similar appearance at the group's Open Computing in Government conference earlier this year.

A number of influential speakers likely to speak on more purely technical content will also address the conference, including security researcher Peter Gutman, who helped develop the popular PGP encryption package and Sun Microsystems' Bryan Cantrill, one of the principal engineers developing the company's DTrace tool.

The conference will be held at Sydney's Carlton Crest hotel next week.

BQ Aquaris E5: An Ubuntu Edition Phone that severely disappoints

Instead, it solidified my opinion that jumping into the ring with Android and Apple is a fight that most aren't really ready to take up. Please, Canonical, go back to the drawing board and return with a UI that makes sense... or simply return all of your focus on what you do best and leave the mobile platform to Google and Apple.
