Desktop Developers' Conference, Day 1
Yesterday was the first day of the Desktop Developers' Conference. The keynote was by Havoc, where he talked about "silos" of free desktops, where each silo is a vertical stack built on the substrate that is the desktop platform. Next, Daniel Stone talked about freedesktop.org and X-servers. Later, I attended a talk about MultiSync and Bidirectional text layouts.
After the conference, I bugged Edd Dumbill to show me his Bluetooth gadgets and software. It's pretty neat how everything can link like that. Edd then gave me a copy of his recent book, Linux Unwired. I now have something to read.
The evening was spent on the town. It's amazing how little time I spend in Ottawa after dark.
