 Desktop Developers' Conference - Day 1

There was just one track, and 12 talks. Started with Havoc's keynote address on Creating a Desktop Operating System, which was good.

The next talk was the X Development at talk by our beloved (mailing list) administrator at, Daniel Stone. Seems like there are four or five xserver trees there right now. One is the monolithic xorg tree, one Daniel's modular autoconfiscated tree in TLA (something better than CVS), a Keith's personal tree including kdrive and stuff, a Glitz tree which is an X server on top of OpenGL (Yes!), and probably a couple more. I go over these later when writing X talks at OLS.

ROX and Zero Install talk by Thomas Leonard, I didn't really payed any attention. I knew all the ideas and stuff behind it, but never really tried it. At the end of the dayed I hanged out a bit with Thomas who is nice young guy. Since I named on my talk Robert Brady, he noted that he and Robert have been class-mates in high school or something like that. On the second day, we hanged out a bit more. He just finished his PhD a couple weeks ago, and is going to continue his work on his desktop for the time.

UniConf is yet another configuration system but the presentation by Avery Pennarun made it look much more interesting.

MultiSync and Synchronizing Personal Infomation on the Desktop, again I knew the idea and stuff from the mailing lists.

Now's my turn.
