Linux Symposium 2009: Day 3

Did not attend yesterday (Day 2) either. However, this morning François-Denis delivered a most cromulent speech despite being quite nervous. There was a couple of very interesting talks, like the current state of kernel development, but I must say that the talk about GStreamer ported to the DaVinci DSP series was a bit disappointing as all the tasty technical details of using SIMD on the DSP for video processing were left out as proprietary—so much for Open Source!

Another thing that quite surprised me is that they had no coffee! How can hackers do anything without coffee? But to do justice to the organisators, they have been otherwise very concerned with their guests’ comfort: wireless access was very good, there were water pitchers in every room, and they were quite quick to intervene should some technical difficulty arise.
