Yesterday I did a portion of the Brainshare opening keynote. With 6,000 people watching, it was the biggest audience I’ve ever had for a talk, which was really exciting.
I showed Ximian Desktop on SUSE and gave a taste of some of the work we’re doing at Novell to make the Novell services available to the Linux desktop. So I got to show off open source clients for iFolder, our iPrint printer configuration server, Groupwise and the Groupwise Messenger instant messaging service.
You can watch it with real player here. Scroll to about 1h30m to see my part.
The rest of the week has been very busy with meetings with analysts, press, customers and all the amazing people here at Novell.
