It’s nice that the hotel is not that far away from the “Altes Rathaus”. So we can sleep longer. In the morning the workshop thing started with Inkscape and the room was pretty full. Probably workshops are the new way to attract people. At Vienna this definitely works. Just walking through an exhibition is only consuming but during a workshop you are able to learn something and actively hit your teeth in a specific topic. Just looking at a command line on a big screen is completely different that typing in commands and see what will happen. I’m curious how many people will attend the RPM packaging workshop on Saturday afternoon.
We have had a long conversation with Daniel Seuffert from *BSD about the “free and open source operating system world”. The conclusion was that it’s good that OpenSolaris, Linux, and *BSD are living in parallel because this “competition” let focus all groups on their main target. But nobody knows what will happen with OpenSolaris.
