LWE sessions

Hi all,

I'm trying to close on LWE sessions for the desktop track.  As many of
you know, we have the opportunity to have about 4 sessions, but we need
to act quickly since the PR side of LWE needs this info to announce the
desktop track.

So far, we have (1) the desktop panel - Steven Vaughan-Nichols
moderating, (2) the ODF ecosystem - Rob Weir, (3) the "Linux Platform"
from an ISV perspective - Brian Aker (MySQL and possibly Adobe, Google,
and Real), and (4) Desktop BLING - Graphics and multimedia.

We still need to identify and confirm a presenter for the forth slot.
Please bring your suggestions to the Desktop Linux conf call...in about
45 minutes.

Attached is the document I will be sending to IDG with the presentation
abstracts and the presenters identified.  Please take a look at this as
well and we should be able to wrap this up at the meeting as well.

Cheers,
John

Interesting data points - SUSE desktop survey

http://www.desktoplinux.com/news/NS9755856281.html

At least in the OpenSuse community, the profile is males in their 20s.

The most important factors are still stability, security, hardware
support, and usability.

touch base on a Desktop Linux call tomorrow.

        Dial in: 402-756-9000

Only three weeks until DAM-4.  We should also consider a general meeting
of the Desktop Linux workgroup at the Collaboration Summit.

Talk to you all tomorrow.

We are all Linux users!

http://desktoplinux.com/news/NS6083062770.html

Nice article Steven!

You are also a Linux user if you use kiosks at an airport or purchase a
retail product (at least register operator is a Linux user).  You are a
Linux user if you use an ATM.  It is likely that you are Linux user (or
will be) if you do forms-based work in jobs such as being a travel
agent, bank administrator, or government forms handler.

Yes, there are a lot of Linux users out there that don't know they are
Linux users!  And...as you mention, as Linux mobile phones invade the
market, more unsuspecting Linux users will be created!
