That is actually *very* cool.  If we couldn't use it at the booth, I'd
like to place my hand on it for use on the workshop tracks (where the
Debian Day will be a part of), if I don't have enough other beamers.

Request for Hardware: I need two beamers for all days for the workshop
tracks.  The beamer will be secured by a LinuxTag supporter who will
be in the room for the whole time, so it cannot be stolen and
shouldn't fall off of the table etc.  If somebody has a chance to take
a beamer with him, please let me know.  Two such gadgets are required.

If these should be demonstrated at the booth, please remember that the
booth needs to provide

  a) a free white wall
  b) space between the beamer and the wall
  c) space for visitors to watch the demonstration

Also, it may be a good idea to make a schedule telling people when
something will actually be demonstrated so they don't have to check if
something interesting is being demonstrated all the time.  Just an

Also, on shows, commercial exhibitors often place a paper watch at the
booth entitled "Next presentation at ...", this could actually be
helpful as well.

Even though I'm not such a friend of it personally, it may be useful
to demonstrate Gnome and KDE on Debian as well, including the
Debian-Menu, special configuration etc.

I'd say this is actually a very good idea.  The Debian project is so
large and nobody can answer all questions.  Knowing who is experienced
with what, could indeed be helpful.  If you are feeding me with
information, I'll set up a list, which could be printed on LinuxTag so
our staff remembers it.

We can't demonstrate all arch's with machines anyway - or did somebody
get hold of an S/390 boxen yet?  :-)

But why... :)



Those who don't understand Unix are condemned to reinvent it, poorly.
