The third openSUSE Conference Keynote

October 18th, 2010 by

This Wednesday the 2nd openSUSE Conference 2010 opens its doors and we are very happy to announce the third keynote today.

The Desktop and the Cloud – Thoughts about Freedom on Thursday morning at 9:30 am. How relevant is the desktop in a world where computing is happening in the cloud?

The motto for our conference is one of the basic ideas of openSUSE: Collaboration across borders. This is why we are especially proud to have this subject addressed in a keynote by two key people from the free desktop world: Cornelius Schumacher, president of KDE e.V., and Vincent Untz, former president of the GNOME Foundation.

They’ll show how KDE and GNOME evolved on their mission to bring user-friendly Free Software to users, where they stand today, and why the Free Desktop is needed to protect our freedoms in a cloudy world.

If you have not registered for the conference yet, please do so here to assure we have enough chairs. Our yearly conference is free of charge, offers interesting talks and gives you the best chance to meet many cool people in person!
