Fosdem 2006

Posted by Treg in General, Linux

This weekend I visited Fosdem 2006 @ ULB Brussels on Sunday morning. I wanted to see some Gentoo stuff (i.e. SeJo’s keynote) and the ACPI presentation of Matthew Garrett. I saw the Xgl Gnome implementation on a laptop with OpenSUSE and some nice tricks with video stuff at the VideoLAN presentation.

Of course I made some pictures on this event.
