Thats a good question for Jack.  He's been doing them all so far.

We'll have to see how many presentations we have before designing a
(rotating?) schedule.  System setup time is a factor as well.

Ah, sounds good.  I wonder if RH will be doing SELinux presentations in
their booth space as well, might not want to compete.

In the past, Pogo Linux provided system(s) for the booth.  They have
access to typical Intel/AMD (even dual core) systems, but probably not
an apple.  I still have a fairly good relationship with them even though
I no longer work there and I can act as the liason for getting hardware.
We just have to determine what we want to have.
