LinuxTag 2002 in Karlsruhe ended successfully

This year's LinuxTag 2002 was a great success. At this time in Karlsruhe, the Federal Ministry of the Interior was even represented with its own forum, where the topic of 'Free Software in Public Administration' was discussed.

In addition to the location, there was another novelty: the hacking contest. Various groups competed against each other as part of the security forum. First, a Linux system had to be secured against other participants and their hack attempts, before attempting to hack their secured Linux systems in the next round. Admission to LinuxTag 2002 was free, but there was also the option of purchasing a 'LinuxTag 2002 Kit' for 10 euros (including funding). This included, among other things, a ticket to the exhibition and the free lecture program for all four days, the LinuxTag 2002 conference CD-ROM, a LinuxTag 2002 collector's penguin badge and a KNOPPIX CD, a compilation of GNU/Linux- Software. There was a good response from the exhibitors and they were consistently positive about LinuxTag 2002, which is to take place again in Karlsruhe next year. Then, under the motto 'Open Horizons', an attempt will be made to bring even more IT areas to LinuxTag 2003.
