Subject: [Lonix] Linux Desktop talk 26/09/2007

Michael Meeks - Distinguished Engineer at Novell
"The Linux Desktop, present and future"
A light-hearted look at the desktop, from past to present, to Novell's
and vision. Michael will prod some of the new toys coming into the
from promising technologies to curvaceous applications, and meditate on
wonders of our new on-line world.

Michael will shamelessly plug whatever project is interesting today, and
attempt to wildly extrapolate the near future, for people's amusement -
rob Gascoigne: "I never predict anything, and I never will!".

Michael is a Christian and enthusiastic believer in Free software. He
much enjoys working for Novell where as a member of the Desktop research
team  he has worked on desktop infrastructure and applications,
CORBA, Bonobo, Nautilus and accessibility, amongst other interesting

He now works full time leading the OpenOffice.org team. Prior to this he
worked for Quantel gaining expertise in real time AV editing and
achieved with high performance focused hardware / software solutions.
