Desktop Linux: fd.o, Platforms, Oh My!
This talk will cover many aspects of Linux on the desktop, particularly related to freedesktop.org; including, but not limited to:
- Observations on X, or, changing the fundamental idea, build system, and layout, of an 18-year old monolith.
- A discussion of the freedesktop.org Platform -- including the practical aspects of getting all comers involved, and a look at where it's going; including the challenges involved with hosting a single, unified, platform with major choices to make.
- Handwaving on where freedesktop.org is going in the future, and observations on where it's come already.
While he isn't off saving the world, Daniel can usually be found making X more modular, doing random fd.o administration, or trying to release a platform. He has far too many email addresses, but always welcomes more domains.
