LinuxWorld Canada: A Messaging Perspective

We went to LinuxWorld Canada earlier this week, held in Toronto. An interesting event, although not quite as busy as the recent US conference in Boston.

Paid attendance at the breakout sessions was extremely variable. Some sessions attracted just three attaendees. Your
humble author's panel session attracted around 35 people, despite
being scheduled in a kiss-of-death slot (8.30am on the last day).

In addition to the bigger booths from IBM/Lotus, and Novell, we saw email-related offerings from:

  • Astaro (email security appliance)
  • Bynari (Linux email server software)
  • Kerio (Linux/MacOS email server software)
  • Powder Software ("Summit Groupware" server software)
  • XPMsoftware ("PerfectMail" anti-spam/anti-virus software)

(Apologies to any vendors we may have missed in the scrum.)
