Microsoft, Google reps speaking at LinuxWorld

The usual line-up of speakers at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo will see some variation next week with speakers from Linux foe Microsoft and Linux user Google.

Bill Hilf, Microsoft's director of platform technology strategy, will discuss "managing Linux in a mixed environment." Chris DiBona, Google's open-source programs manager, will speak in a panel on the state of open-source software.

Microsoft and Google representatives also will make an appearance at the twice-annual show's geek quiz, the Golden Penguin Bowl, show organizers said.
