[CeBIT] HOWTO find our booth

As some people had problems finding our booth, here's a small explanation. We are guest at the booth of Univention in Hall 2, stand B36. It's quite near to the north entry, where you arrive by the tram lines 8 and 18.

Look for the univention booth:

If you are direct in front of the Univention booth, we are on the right hand side of the booth:

If you come from the other side, from the rest of the Open Source Area, it looks like this:

PS: And now, dear zobel, you have three guesses, what Pia is going to get for her birthday...

[CeBIT] Something I like to share with the Debian community

I'm really delighted, thet you are here! You know, I started quite late with that whole IT business, and Debian was my first distribution. It all worked perfectly and took all my fears of it away!

[CeBIT] Yes, we still have free tickets.

But speaking of that I must confess, that by mistake I deleted one of the mails asking for a such a free ticket, instead of replying. I'm very sorry. So if you come from the Netherlands, asked me for a ticket, and haven't got an answer, yet, please use one of the following links:

I hope, one of the links will work long enough, till the intended recipient reads this ;)

[CeBIT] How to get instantly the attention of your audience of your talk

Start with the sentence: I'm pleased to present you on this Windows notebook in the Linux forum a talk about FreeBSD...

How to not loose their attention

Have the Windows notebook you where supplied with install some security updates during your talk, and then be constantly busy clicking the Please reboot popups away...

Well, I hope the video was working. I'm really looking forward to see that video.

[CeBIT] Link to my Debian GNU/kFreeBSD talk

Sorry; I didn't made it in the promised 15 minutes (as someone turned the internet off), but here is finally the link to my (German) slides of my Debian GNU/kFreeBSD talk. (Sorry, no fancy website arround that, yet.)

I would also like to make clear, that Debian does not plan to drop its support for the Linux kernel. Debian will continue to release a linux based distribution. You may install the very same distribution based upon a FreeBSD kernel. It's your choice.

A several people asked that at our booth, I guess there is somewhere a misunderstanding, but I don't know the root if that missunderstanding. If someone could tell me, why he thought so (maybe I missed a unclear formulation somewhere?) I would be very glad and try to improve it.

So, thanks again for the kbsd people, who helped alot and really tried to answer every stupid question I came up with during preparing my talk :)
