     Presentation by Bart Decrem:
     "Firefox and the Linux Desktop"

     Bart Decrem has contributed tremdously to Linux on the Desktop
     through his work at companies such as Eazel and Hancom Linux, as
     well as through his work with the GNOME and Mozilla Foundations.
     At the Mozilla Foundation Bart oversaw marketing and business
     affairs for the Foundation, including the "Spread Firefox"
     campaign which has been instrumental in the rapid growth of the
     Firefox browser.

     In April Bart started a new company called Round Two whose mission
     is to provide "a new crop of products and services that will
     enhance your Firefox experience".  Bart's talk will cover the
     rapid growth of Firefox, it's implications for the growth of
     Desktop Linux, and Round Two's plans for enhancing the Firefox
