Would it make sense to schedule such a demo thrice a day at 11:00,
14:00 and 17:00 and announce this schedule on an A3 printout so
visitors can plan their visit to meet such a presentation?

Stop smoking what you smoke, it's not good for you. :)

Since PowerPC machines, especially powerboox, are quite proliferated,
it would probably make sense to have one such machine at the booth to
show people how well it is supported.

Just to ensure you understand the date, this refers to June 1st.

I'd also like to receive a text (or html) version of it to be placed
on the web pages, so at least our booth staff can read (and
comment/rant) about it before LinuxTag.  This is not a requirement, I
guess, but it would be nice.

Skolelinux, but they probably are at the PingoS booth.



Whenever you meet yourself you're in a time loop or in front of a mirror.
