    Phoronix: Features Of A Happy Linux Desktop?

    During Keith Packard's talk at FOSDEM 2008, he had went in-depth on talking about what he wants to see for a "happy desktop" for Linux users. Most of these issues are commonsense or have been described in earlier talks (such as from Linux.Conf.Au), but below is his list...

    Thanks for the videos.

    Is the Keith Packard video still on the way?

    The Egbert Eich video has no sound BTW

    The Keith Packard - Intel & X.Org (96MB; Ogg Theora) talk is a dead link: http://www.radeonhd.org/fosdem-2008/...2008_intel.ogg

    Thanks for posting these though.

    Great video. Thanks!
    But was it just me, or does the video get cut off at 30:48 before the talk ends?

    yeah, both Keith Whitwell's and Keith Packard's videos that I've seen, end before their talk ends.
