 Running Time: 43:49 and found here

1) Introduction

2) News

Microsoft approves MoonLight as part of the deal with Novell


Lawsuit against Best buys and other over GPL




3) Predictions for 2010(both things we think will happen and won’t)

An App Store for Linux like there is one for the IPhone and Android Phones

Microsoft will be try to make a serious run at VMWare for the Virtualization Market on XSeries, Red Hat will come from no where and put Microsft into 3rd place behind Xen.

Someone will figure out what to do with Google Wave in an enterprise or just in general.  Wave Federation will take off.

Chrome OS and Android will merge.

This will not be the year of the Linux Desktop.  Linux will continue to gain share in the X86 Server market.  Linux will be the perfered Netbook OS paired with something like Chrome OS.

Linux will not see a major virus in 2010.  Really we don’t think there will be a major issue with Viruses in general in 2010.
