Hi All,

Just a quick heads up on CUUG's next meeting:

TOPIC:	Open Source Desktop Software Directions
SPEAKER:	Aaron Seigo
Time/Loc:	See below for details

ABSTRACT:	The media and the market are abuzz with news and discussion
of the open source desktop, but there is very little consistency in the
messages. Just where is open source desktop software today? Where is it
going? What can (and can't) it do for companies, governments and home users?
How can you help out, and when should you jump on board? 

This presentation looks at both the technology and market forces that are
behind modern open source desktop software and attempts to clear the air
with some sensibility. 

Aaron Seigo is a 15 year veteran in the software industry who currently
works full time as an open source software developer. Within the KDE project
Aaron works on the desktop framework and various applications, writes for
online and print journals, is on the KDE e.V. board of directors and speaks
around the world on topics relating to KDE and Free software.

5:30 PM, Tuesday, December 12, 2006 (2nd Tuesday)

Dave Watkins
