As detailed, very unfortunately the original talk is postponed. Sorry
for the change of plan.

Taking a wider and higher level view of what Josh was going to talk
about, we can have a discussion on what it /is/ that sways people to
prefer one OS over another and one desktop over another. What is it
about /your/ preferred OS and desktop that have you using that
particular system? Or indeed, what was it that drove you away from other

/How/ do we /use/ the things for what we do? Can it (IT!, ICT!!) all be
done better?

I've been giving some thought to the "Human-Computer" interface that I
can share. Others are welcome to add their ideas in this evening's
free-for-all 'talk' for how to do things better!

Humans and Computers and Linux and all other OSes!
