As we blogged yesterday, CC has a booth at LinuxWorld and our Chairman & CEO Larry Lessig gave a keynote there on Tuesday. Yesterday, we were thrilled to learn that ccHost won the Linux World Product Excellence Award for “Best Open Source Solution.” The other nominees were rPath Conary and Novell SUSE Linux 10.x.
