The marketing wasn't too bad, and they did have some technical content.

If the person there who brought up Linux geeks and open source
versus DRM and software licensing is on this list, thank you --
I'm sure you spoke for a lot of us in the audience.

I hope you write that up! I want to hear about it.

I got mine booting off an Ubuntu 11.04 live USB stick today, just for fun.
I'm still working on setting up my MeeGo C++ development environment.
They appear to have been overly optimistic in listing Python/Perl/Ruby
as valid development languages for it (at least for GUI apps), since
the Qt bindings aren't included in MeeGo ...  but maybe some day.
