    Default X@FOSDEM 2010 Is Now A Half-Day Event

    Phoronix: X@FOSDEM 2010 Is Now A Half-Day Event

    Well, it was bad enough when X@FOSDEM became a one day event (where for the past several years it has been a highly-populated two-day conference) at the upcoming Free Open Source Developers' European Meeting (FOSDEM) taking place in Brussels next weekend, but now it's not even a one day event. X@FOSDEM has just been sliced down to now just be a half-day conference.....

    I think the reality isn't that dire as the picture painted here.
    These days there's more development in X going on then "ever" hence fosdem doesn't nearly mean life or death of anything. Get over it, it's somewhat similar to newspapers, they're supposed to fade away since much has been replaced digitally by technology (online video and other stuff).

    Hey,

    I would like to point out that I'm not a student any more, and haven't been one for 3 years. Please correct this. I don't want to read in a year or two that I can't make it to FOSDEM because I'm busy at kindergarten

    5 hours isn't bad though? I mean, it means people get to see other talks also! Spread the love so to speak!
