    The good news, however, is that the audio can be easily cleaned up through Audacity.
    You can't. I tried before with similar files, either with Audacity or with professional programs (not any better actually). Denoise filters and the like can't magically clean the files, contrary to the kind of knowledge that comes from watching too much spy movies. You can, with hours of manual efforts, clean up a small part of a recording, but that's a painful process that would take ages on files as long as those. Noise removal filters mess up the audio at least as much as they "remove" the noise, which means for a noise as bad as the one on the videos, you'll create too much mess for the audio to get better.

    Bottom line is, the only way to get decent audio is to get a decent audio at recording time - plugging directly to the sound system is great when the speakers have microphones, or at least putting a micro close to the speaker (or if there's no other way, something like an "mp3" recorder, provided you choose a good position).

    I'd love to be able to listen to these talks though.

    Don't think so; that kind of discussion normally happens more at the XDC/XDS conferences which are organized by x.org.

    Right now I think the feeling is that the features being worked on right now are so important for the future of "the Linux Desktop" that they really *should* be the priority for a few more months, ie it's not just developers being distracted by shiny things. Once kernel modesetting, RandR1.3, DRI2, GEM (with or without TTM underpinnings) and RDR are all in place, I expect that the longer term discussion and planning will ramp up again.

    There does seem to be some important work happening on the X input side as well, although I'm not really up on the details.

    So do they all have understandable audio now? The ones posted earlier all tend to be way too quiet, or have super annoying audio glitches.

    Ya I may have complained about flash in the past, but I do appreciate Phoronix working to make these recordings easily available.

    Just out of curiosity :

    Was there a topic at the FOSDEM about the future organization and development of Xorg?

    Are there any comments to this topic at the FOSDEM or am I totally wrong?

    Thank you for posting a link to the vids!

    Finally Phoronix acknowledged that not everyone likes flash.

    It still required a view of the source at blip.tv to get the mpg version, as it has a different filename. But that is their problem, not Phoronix's.
