Excerpts from rosea.grammostola's message of 2010-05-06 20:42:52 +0200:

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
attend.
