The (Re)Architecture of the X Window System
blah blah blah X Window System blah blah blah. Oh wait, that's not enough detail.
Ok, so we're taking X apart and putting it back together, this talk will showcase what the critical pieces are and how they're working together now.
Nifty stuff like projectively transformed windows running at phenominal speed will be part of a spectacular floor show. Really, it'll be better than it sounds here, especially if I get some sleep before actually writing the paper.
Keith Packard has been developing open source software since 1986, focusing on the X Window System since 1987, designing and implementing large parts of the current implementation. He is currently employed by HP as a member of the Cambridge Research Laboratory working on window system technologies for pervasive and mobile computing. He received a Usenix Lifetime Achievement award in 1999 and an Open Source Grand Master award in 2003.
