This page provides all the information that people need regarding Fedora's presence at LinuxTag in 2009.


LinuxTag is a free software expo and conference with an emphasis on Linux. It is relatively large, in 2008 over 11.000 visitors from around 30 nations, claiming that it is the largest expo of this kind in Europe. The LinuxTag byline in this year is "where .COM meets .ORG". This includes both representatives from not-for-profit/community projects and from companies.
