The Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit held on April 8-10 in Austin, Texas, may have been invitation only, but fortunately the LF has posted videos for the rest of us. The videos include sessions on mobile Linux, kernel development, and the boom in Linux laptops.

According to the Linux Foundation, which is led by executive director and keynote speaker Jim Zemlin (pictured), the LF Collaboration Summit is the only Linux event to combine participation from “developers, users, vendors, ISVs, attorneys, and C-level executives to tackle the most pressing issues facing Linux.” The LF formed in early 2007 when the OSDL (Open Source Development Labs) merged with the Free Standards Group (FSG).

Hosted by IBM, this year's summit had a 30 percent increase in attendance over the previous year, says the LF. The event was also home to at least one newsworthy announcement: Via's promise to start opening up its chipsets to the open source community.

The LF has posted videos of keynote sessions, panels, and even individual interviews. Here are the posted keynote address videos:

Here are the roundtable panel videos:

The Linux Foundation has also shot ten video interviews of various speakers and attendees: Andrew Shikiar (LiMo), Eric Chu (Google), Stormy Peters (OpenLogic), Tsugikazu Shibata (NEC), Brandon Philips (Novell), James Bottomley (kernel developer), Jonathan Corbet (, Bdale Garbee (HP), Inna Kuznetsova (IBM), and Jim Zemlin (LF). The Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit 2008 videos are now available, here.
