openSUSE day is over - Linuxtag continues

In the afternoon we had two mobile computer related talks. Timo's presentation (see photo above) showed in his presentations some areas were Linux has to improve, e.g. he did some initial measurements for suspend to disk that shows that Mac OS X is faster than Vista and both are faster than openSUSE 10.2. Compressing the disk image during suspend gives an improvement of 30 % for openSUSE but we're still the slowest.:-( The question is now on how to move forward here. Timo also talked about fingerprint sensor support - he's one of the main authors in this area -, powermanagement and wireless support.

In the evening Patrick presented openSUSE on the Sony Playstation 3.

Today you'll find us at the openSUSE booth. Matthias Hopf will talk later today about compiz and Larry Ewing will take part in a panel discussion about the future of the desktop.
