FOSDEM 2012: more boring shit
Let's take a look at my annotated copy of the FOSDEM 2012 main talk schedule, shall we?
Thanks 2005: A Viable Model for Presenting the Obvious
What was wrong with the old OSI? What *mattered* about the old OSI?
The description talks about agile development. No further arguments.
FreedomBox is a personal server running a free sofzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Future of UI
Ah, Carsten Munk. Apparently once you get beyond 'traditional' mobile linux you get to a point where you start projects, attract a lot of developers and testers, and then drop it like a sack of shit and start over on something else.
EFL's been 'up-and-coming' for about twenty years now. One product. Just one. Please.
Here is everything you need to know about Wayland.
"and why it doesn't work"
bottom: qemu. top: libvirt. past: qemu. future: obscurity.
It's like FreeBSD Jails, but shittier and less useful! Let's talk about it for an hour!
Hey super, let's cram libvirt into the kernel... and bring in sdl with it.
Network and IO Track
This is an empty list. I hope the talk just involves Ben Klang staring silently at the audience.
This idiot wants to map ipv6 space to everyone's process tables. Because of reasons?
Someone thinks UNIX i/o needs more abstraction. He will be presented the Nobel Prize in No Shit, Genius following his presentation.
Number of FOSDEM talks worth attending, beginning of time through present: this one
Thank someone has finally addressed this crippling problem in the world of open source software.
Things left out of talk title: this is about the web, not systems anything. He is talking about varnish. He is a php goon.
coreboot has never mattered, ever. it will continue to not matter into the foreseeable future. UPDATE: now it also does not matter on laptops?
A man sets lower bounds as well as upper bounds. He uses simple mathematics to determine threshold levels. During the talk, several people die of boredom.
An attention whore explains why everyone should pay attention to attention whores. She is secretly furious about being called 'Clarista' in one section of the FOSDEM site and 'Clarissa' in another.
Guess what, Bryan Østergaard? Nobody cares. "You're doing it wrong" is code for "I'm an arrogant prick."
This is another speech from someone who is too cool for a full name (like rasterman and Claris[st]a). He thinks he knows why people do things. He's likely wrong.
This description starts out "Any sufficiently complex application eventually evolves its own scripting framework or domain-specific language" and blithely continues, never asking why the hell that has to be the case in the first place.
A project so wonderful even the people who financed it hate it!
Developers still think configuration management is something they invented. Here, a developer makes incredibly bad decisions and lies about software.
