    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...

        All that would really be awesome, but question: why is it too early for kernel mode setting and what is kernel mode setting?

          Thanks for the videos.

          Is the Keith Packard video still on the way?

              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.
