We have some other events to do: Froscon, Cebit, ... :-)

I demoed KDE 4 on Cebit, and that was very much unstable. But people liked 
it a lot.

Gimp has not even had slides. Simon used only live Gimp to do his lecture. 
That was very cool.

Ian Murdock had some slides, but there was no text. He displayed some 
artwork, "if you listen to me, you don`t need to read the same stuff, so I 
show you some fine artworks".

Very cool :-)

Yes. I tried to do this for my workshop "Introduction into building RPMs".

Then I realized, I only have 45 minutes. That`s way to short to really 
write a spec-file and build the rpm. LinuxTag has to give the workshop more 

For things to show (not to create) like desktop-eye-candy or some other 
feature, 45 minutes are much more time.
