The press will not being given access to the Linux Foundation's End User Collaboration Summit, according to a report on InternetNews, by Sean Michael Kerner. Kerner says that his request for press attendance was responded to by a mail from Angela Brown of the Linux Foundation which said "We have decided that press will not be allowed to participate in the event. After the event, we will issue a summary to press and be available for questions".

The End User Collaboration event, being held in New York, includes presentations from Novell CEO Ron Hovsepian, Canonical CEO Mark Shuttleworth and executives from financial corporations such as the New York Stock Exchange, UBS and Credit Suisse. The agenda for the Summit was published by the Linux Foundation, but it was suggested by some that it would have been valuable to the Linux community to see more success stories about Linux in major enterprises reported. Kerner concluded saying "With a closed door event, my first question will always be – what aren't they telling me?".
