7:15  Introductory remarks

7:20  "Taking Open Source, Enterprise-Class applications
        off the desktop and into the Field"

        Presented by Thomas Hall
            Technical Account Manager, Wind River System

        There are many compelling reasons to adopt Open Source
	   applications for the desktop; one asks... Why stop there?
        Well, turns out there are significant technical hurdles to
        overcome minimal resources - successfully scaling powerful
        Open Source applications like Apache and MySQL into a
        handheld device requires Linux development and testing
        tools well beyond printf.

        However, while the groundswell of interest in the Linux
        OS has resulted in highly stable, mature kernels, this
        interest has not yet translated into commercial-quality
        Public Domain development tools. While it is comforting
        to have a ubiquitous technology like GDB available, one
        wants to further draw on best-in-class tools and paradigms
        that have been developed in the commercial software
        development space.

        Wind River Systems will present on this topic and demonstrate
        the Eclipse-based Workbench IDE and Platform for Consumer
        Device, Linux Edition.  As time permits, several commercially
        available products will be demonstrated running Wind River

8:30  Roundtable Exchange - where the attendees can make
       announcements or ask a linux question of the group.
