The show was slightly smaller than last year, but still busy.
Microdigital were showing off their Omega (one in a standard PC
case, and one in a rackmount 1U enclosure). Castle had a stand
full of Iyonix machines, occasionally visible beyond the press of
punters, and Simtec wandered by the NetBSD stand to wave a very
nice looking ITX format ARM motherboard under our noses.
Loan machines are being actively investigated!
Only a couple of machines on the NetBSD stand - a PC running ogle
playing DVDs, and a RiscPC with a PIC controlled servo operating
the front door flap (all controlled from NetBSD of course).
Hopefully we can persuade Gavan to clean up the small code
changes and put the build instructions online :)
We sold several 1.6.1 CDs, and would have sold some package CDs
had we them ready. A notable change from last year was the number
of people working on embedded projects interested in NetBSD.
For next year we may want to see if Wasabi have some spare
