Reporting from LinuxWorld this week: Look for news on desktop preloads, green IT, and more

I am in San Francisco this week reporting on the LinuxWorld 2007 Conference and Expo and the co-located Next Generation Data Center Conference at the Moscone Center North. I will be meeting with lots of tech execs and vendors, including IBM, HP, Dell, Sun, Novell, Oracle, Motorola, and many more. I will report on the latest developments in the Linux industry and the latest data center technologies.

Here are some of the developments that you can expect to hear more about:

  • Desktop Linux preloaded on new systems from Dell, Lenovo, and others
  • Green IT technologies for saving power and money
  • Linux on mobile and embedded devices
  • Job market trends for Linux-savvy IT pros
