Confirmed speakers for the keynote series are: Bill Gates, president/CEO of Microsoft; John Chambers, president/ CEO of Cisco Systems; Nobuyki Idei, president/co-CEO and representative director of Sony; Scott McNealy, chairman/CEO, Sun Microsystems; Dr. Eric Schmidt, chairman/CEO of Novell; Rick Thoman, president/COO, Xerox; and Linus Torvalds, founder of Linux Operating Systems.
