From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Ontario Linux Fest is an annual grass roots conference organized by Linux and Open Source enthusiasts for Linux and Open Source enthusiasts. The event debuted on October 13th, 2007.

The event is organized as a conference with talks discussing Linux and open source related issues. The topics range from technical discussions regarding software projects, new and emerging technologies and how to's to non-technical topics such as advocacy, history and motivational talks.


The Ontario Linux Fest was the idea of Richard Weait and John Van Ostrand. The pair attended the Ohio LinuxFest for the first time in 2004 and were very pleased with the content and organizations of the event. A few different ideas about an Ontario Linux Fest were discussed on the way back from Ohio, but it wasn't until late 2006 that John Van Ostrand took the first steps in organizing the Ontario Linux Fest.
