Xspice talk given at FOSDEM 2012

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

I gave a talk about the hack that is Xspice during the last awesome-if-you-aren’t-distracted-by-a-pending-talk-or-second-guessing-a-given-talk FOSDEM.

Slides, are in multitalk, also in html. Patches for multitalk used.

Things learned:

  • homework should include debunking assumption that the W thing is probably just a fad that is going away.
  • practicing to not talk fast doesn’t always work.
  • spice is not the greatest thing since sliced bread.

More positive lessons learned:

  • Wspice would be more interesting to the X-turning-W crowd, and in general for the future.
  • Perhaps rendering at the server and that’s it for 3D is a good idea.
