OSDL Printing Summit

What an exciting week! After many years I finally met Cristian in person at the OSDL Printing Summit that was held in Atlanta this week. The event was great fun and it was really nice to meet with Celeste, Ellen and Jan from OpenUsability.org as well. HP provided all the attendees with free lunches to go along with the free (as in speech, not as in lunch) HP printer drivers. They also provided large bowls with really nice fruit. A shame that a lot of it was still left over at the end. Wish I had one of those bowls here at home.

Bad refs

I'm deeply disappointed in the Superbowl ref's. I'm new to this football thing, us europeans play soccer instead, but after having taken my time to learn about all the weird rules, several of these calls didn't make sense at all. Now don't get me wrong, the refs in soccer make bad calls all the time, but with soccer you have only 1 ref and 2 linesmen. With football you have a soccer team worth of referees running around, "the people upstairs" and instant replays that the referee can watch.

Women in Open Source

Danese Cooper [http://danesecooper.blogs.com/divablog/2005/08/catchuposcon_li.html|asks] where all the women are in Open Source. I don't know about all of them, but several of them can currently be found in Malaga at the KDE conference. Among them is Lauri who received one of the first ever KDE aKademy awards in recognition of all the hard work she has put in KDE. Congratulations Lauri, it's well deserved!

KDE has also the [http://women.kde.org/|KDE-Women] website for those that seek the company of some fellow women within KDE.

language fetishists: try Eclipse

Maybe you still think of it as an Java IDE, but with this weeks release of [http://www.eclipse.org/cdt/|Eclipse CDT 3.0], Eclipse has become a much more interesting C/C++ IDE as well. Eclipse has a powerful plugin architecture that allows all kinds of powerful tools, from content assistence, [http://subclipse.tigris.org/|SVN integration] to refactoring assistants. See what's [http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/~checkout~/cdt-home/news/cdt30-whats-new/CDT-3.0-News.htm?cvsroot=Tools_Project|hot] for yourself.

Ottawa Desktop Developers Conference

I just returned from a week of Canadian hospitality in Ottawa. First I attended the Desktop Developers Conference, later in the week followed by the Ottawa Linux Symposium. It was also a chance to meet for the first time with some of my colleagues at Intel. The group I work in is spread around the globe, with me being based in France, some others in Bejing and the rest spread across various locations in the US. In October I will be moving to Oregon to be a bit closer to some of them. Read on for some impressions of the Desktop Developers Conference.

Standards: FreeDesktop.org and beyond

I like Aaron’s suggestion to label more clearly the adoption status of the various drafts at FreeDesktop.org I also believe that at some point we must be able to say “this is something that is widely adopted and deserves to be a standard
