Linux Symposium

I appear to be in Ontario, Canada. More specifically I’m in Ottawa though hours last night was spent at a bar in Quebec.

Yesterday, Kay and I gave a talk on Dynamic Device Handling on the Modern Desktop and I think it was well received. Yeay!

Oh, and I’ve even got to say that hal-device-manager (the small python GTK+ app for viewing the hal device objects and their properties) was an “unmaintained piece of crap” alluding in a funny way to the recent LWN article badmouthing HAL. Some people in the audience laughed. Lots of excellent questions too. Good times.

I’ve uploaded the slides from mine and Kay’s talk here. Enjoy.
