Dunno about two conferences, but I sure don't want it to become another
US-only conference. All other Linux related conferences I know of are
in the US or Australia.
> I've spoken to a lot of kind, special and smart people on LAC, that was
Sounds like an interesting idea. I'm just a user and I wanted to
attend the LAC for at least the last two years, but never managed. I do
think it is a bit dev-centric, and I would have gone there mainly to
meet people I only know from the internet thus far.
I agree that it would be nice to have enough stuff that's interesting to
users. At least some of the talks I've seen were really quite technical.
Not that it's a bad thing, there just should be enough other stuff to
make it interesting for users too.
> Interesting was also the confrontation between the OSX users from HKU
I think everyone noticed the quite big number of presentations done on
OSX and even one on Windows. I don't know about the concerts. I think we
could see it the way Jörn did: those OSX/Windows users are not-yet
converts interested in Linux audio. Personally I attribute it to the
ever-increasing number of cross-platform applications. I would like to
see all presentations on Linux, especially since I don't see what's
missing on Linux to do presentations and since everything presented at a
LAC should run on Linux (else, why is it there?).
Yet a confrontation and interchange with users of other OSes is probably
a good thing. Kind of a reality check, it shows on the one side what's
missing, on the other what's possible already.
Well, I'm already looking forward to next year and hope I'll be able to
