  Linux on Laptops - Adventures in mobile Linux computing
  presented by: Chander Kant, President of LinuxCertified, Inc. 

    Over the past few years, Linux has become dominant server operating
    system for various applications, such as file and web serving.
    While Linux continues to make further in-roads at the high-end, the
    desktop space is now beginning to emerge.  Technologies and business
    dynamics seem to be in place for an explosive growth of Linux on the
    desktop.  Another recent trend has been emergence of laptops as the key
    desktop platform.  2003 was the first year when new laptops outsold
    new PCs.  So, will Linux leapfrog the PC and find its home directly on
    the laptop?

    This presentation will discuss the current state of support for
    Linux on the laptops.  We will discuss the challenges -- what works,
    what can be made to work, and what does not work.  We will consider
    pros and cons of various technologies -- hardware, kernels,
    distributions etc., in making of a productive Linux laptop.

    Chander Kant is founder and president of LinuxCertified, Inc. [1], a
    leading provider of Linux laptops, training and services.
    Chander has been involved with technology and business side of
    Linux in many different projects.  As a key member of the open-source
    community, he is very enthusiastic about enabling Linux as a
    mainstream operating system.  Prior to founding LinuxCertified, Chander
    was Director of Business Development at VERITAS software, where he was
    responsible for high-availability clustering products.  Chander was
    also involved in architecting high-performance Linux compute servers
    at SGI.  Chander is a co-author of 'Linux Compute Clusters,' an on-going
    open-license book. [2]
