Snapshots from the OSADL booth at the SPS/IPC/Drives at Nuremberg

Extremely busy and successful exhibition days

Linux in Automation

We had extremely busy and successful exhibition days at SPS/IPC/Drives 2006, Europe's leading exhibition for electric automation where we presented OSADL for the first time at an exhibition. The booth was part of the "Linux in Automation" initiative organized by the LIVE Linux Verband. Thank you, Sabine, for doing such a wonderful job!

Always crowdy

Most of the time, it was very crowdy at the OSADL booth, and we all were very busy to explain to our visitors why it is such a good idea to become an OSADL member.

Behind the curtain

We had, of course, access to the Internet at our booth, and from time to time someone  was digging into the chaos of our "machine room" to check email or do whatever other important work. And even in the greatest chaos, someone was always smiling...

Virtualization at kernel level

Here, the newest and greatest kernel feature is demonstrated, explained and discussed: Virtualization similar to Xen, VMware® etc. - but at kernel level!  An old dream of the machine industry finally becomes true.
