DawnIt is dawn for humanity. Slowly the new free operating systems are rising and lighting up the earth from the long dark night....

Enough of this. This is one of the first conference in the year 2001 and by the end of the year I am sure that all of us will be tired of the pun on Arthur C. Clarke's book and movie "2001: The Space Odyssey" theme long before the end of that year. Its hard to avoid the fun and play with words like this, and you will see that we are sort of using this as a theme during the conference.
