Great bunch of folks at the Greater London Linux User Group. And I say that not just because LUG leader Simon Morris bought me a pint after the show. I linked the headline of this post to Simon’s review of our presentations.
Jono delivered a solid talk about advocating open source effectively–a subject he and I discuss frequently.
I spoke about “Desktop Innovation at Novell,” the basic theme of which is that much of the really cool new stuff happening in desktop Linux is happening at Novell. I always bear some apprehension about doing this talk, because I unapologetically extol Novell’s virtues. (I also show off a lot of SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10, like Beagle, Banshee, F-spot, Xgl, and several usability changes to the Gnome desktop interface. These things back up the discussion very well.) So, I was really pleased at how well the talk was received. During Q&A one guy actually called out how impressed he was with everything I had shown.
Tonight, we’re off to Manchester where I speak about AppArmor, something that will be much more challenging for me.
