openSUSE presentations

While thinking about content for my talk at FOSDEM I was reminded that I never uploaded the slides for the talks I did at my local GNU Linux user group . I have now uploaded the slides, and they are also available here:

Also check out some of the other interesting talks that members of WUGLUG have given this year.

The description for my FOSDEM talk is at http://fosdem.org/2008/schedule/events/opensuse_one_click_install . If anyone has anything in particular they would like me to cover then please let me know.

    In the slide ‘The Big Picture’ from the build service talk the physical servers images are nice, where did you get them from? i.e what open tool was used to create this, I’ve been interested in an open Visio replacement for a while

  2. Those were produced using OpenOffice.org Draw. It’s not great, nowhere near visio for diagraming, but the best Free Software alternative I can find, and good enough for simple things. kivio lacks stencil sets. dia is very limited. inkscape is too focused at artwork rather than diagramming, etc.

    Fantastic, thanks mate, I’ll check it out.

    It’s funny that we haven’t ‘scratched this itch’ in the FOSS world, you’d think it would be one of the first apps we would have sorted.

    BTW, enjoyed the presentations, thanks very much.
