Best In Show


Debian won the ALs award for Show Favorite in the Best Software category.


2007 note: by a strange twist of fate, this sign is in my basement.


After the 2000 ALS was wrapping up, it was decided that I would take this back home with me. I worked for a Linux company that paid my way to ALS, and it was thought that surely they would pay my way next year, and we could show off the sign at next year's booth.


It turned out that 2000 was the last year for ALS in Atlanta (2001 was the last year for ALS, period). I was no longer working for the same company by 2001, and didn't get my way to a Linux conference paid for anymore. But it's stuck with us over numerous moves and I still have it.


If I get to another Linux conference with a Debian booth, I'd bring it if it's not banned from airplanes these days.
