This weekend saw this year's Ohio LinuxFest which took place in, you guessed it, Ohio. More precisely in downtown Columbus (not to be confused with the TV detective). Haiku was there and it was taken by Darkwyrm and Joe Prostko. They were later joined by Mike Summers who, according to Darkwyrm was a regular "chick magnet". That, I'm sorry, but I find hard to believe. Not that Mike is a chick magnet, but that there were chicks to be magnetized at a LinuxFest... but we'll take his word for it.
The event went quite well with many attendants showing interest in Haiku and its capabilities, although its shortcomings were noticed as well, naturally. It's been said before and it will be said again (and was by Darkwyrm in his report), an office suite is badly needed (among others of course). There are some ongoing efforts to bring one to Haiku and it won't be soon enough when that happens. But back on topic, they seemed to have a good time and it shows in Darkwyrm's report, so head on over to the Haiku Blog-O-sphere and read it.
