SSC to be Exhibitor and Media Sponsor at LinuxWorld Conference & Expo 2005 in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -August 8, 2005 - SSC today is exhibiting and being featured as an official media sponsor at Linux World Conference & Expo 2005. The event takes place August 8-11, 2005 in San Francisco, Calif. SSC is publisher of Linux Journal, the original, market-leading monthly magazine of the Linux Community, and TUX Magazine, the first and only magazine for the new Linux user. At LinuxWorld, SSC will highlight new developments with both Linux Journal and TUX, while both publications will also garner added attention and branding awareness as official event media sponsors.

"LinuxWorld is always a springboard for us," said Carlie Fairchild, SSC Publications VP of Marketing & Sales. "Because we put so many Linux Journals directly into decision-makers' hands, it adds a personal touch and boosts readership dramatically. Our advertisers appreciate getting the extra bang for their buck."

"The expo will also give us a chance to demonstrate the power of our new publication, TUX Magazine, to the Linux Community," added Fairchild. "Once show attendees see how valuable and user-friendly TUX is, the first and only magazine for the new Linux user, we're sure to add numerous subscribers to the 58,500 we've garnered in only four issues. Furthermore, once product vendors see TUX, they will realize that the market for desktop Linux has arrived. The technology is there, and the users are there -- soon more than MacOS -- which opens the door to myriad opportunities for nimble vendors. TUX is the ideal vehicle for those firms 'in the know' to tap these opportunities before their competitors do."

LinuxWorld Conference and Expo, with 15 different events throughout the world in 2005, is the largest and most established worldwide brand for Linux-related business events. The 2004 event in San Francisco had an attendance of over 11,000, which is expected to grow substantially for 2005. IDG World Expo Corp. is the event coordinator.
