MAIN PRESENTATION

  TOPIC:  Hardware for Linux
    

  PRESENTED BY:
    Rick Moen

  TOPIC SUMMARY:
    It used to be challenging to buy hardare to run Linux.  21 years of
    Linux and hardware history have created a few new challenges but 
    mostly improvements on the whole.  With a few handy tricks and 
    a few colourful lessons about hardware past and present, you can
    enjoy success, good performance, and long-term satisfaction in your
    choice of computing hardawre.  Our speaker will address the
    traditional server, workstation, and laptop markets but also some
    of the intriguing areas for use in 'embedded' computing such 
    as DVRs and wireless gateways.  (If you elect to use our speaker's
    guidelines to avoid suckage outside of Linux, we won't tell.)

  ABOUT THE PRESENTER:
    Rick Moen (http://linuxmafia.com/~rick/) is longtime senior system
    administrator and member of SVLUG's Web Team, who also runs nearby
    Linux user group CABAL (http://linuxmafia.com/cabal/), meeting at
    his and his wife's house in West Menlo Park, and has been fooling
    with various Unices since the 1980s.  Having formerly been a technical
    employee at several Linux firms (Linuxcare, VA Linux Systems, and
    California Digital Corp.) during decades past, he stresses that it's 
    not his fault and he has an alibi.
