Come and gather with fellow Wine hackers to: * Discuss the future of Wine * Work on nasty glibc bugs * Attack installers in an install-o-thon * Relax in the beautiful winter weather of Minnesota, enjoying the St. Paul Winter Carnival (complete with Ice Palace!). * Marvel at how the weather promotes an amazing amount of hacking time. * Hoist a real glass of Wine with your compadres at the Mall of America. The conference is in the early stages of planning, so full details are not yet available. However, here are the details that are firm: Date Saturday, January 31st and Sunday, February 1st, 2004."

    For those of you looking to go out and have fun here, stay away from mall of america bars, they suck. Unless you're into 35 year old women that are trying to still fit into their high school clothes from 1986. You think I'm kidding?

    Block E downtown has some of the more interesting clubs. Infinity club on the first floor of the hotel, there's a cool bar on the 4th floor of the hotel, and there's another club on the 2nd floor of the entertainment complex that is supposed to be awe

    A whole conference dedicated to emulating an operating system I've been trying to get away from for 8 years, I'm there!

    Hehe, sorry :)

    • That's quite true. I think people should be aiming at maybe just making OpenGL a little more mature, so it can outperform say DirectX 9 (I think that's what it's at now?) Then I think/hope companies will start creating more games for Linux, I know, if there were more games on the market for Linux, I would buy them for sure. Although, most 'geeks' I know, have given Linux a try, but gave up, due to the fact Linux has no gaming abilities, I haven't let that fail me yet, I won't, because I hope sooner or later
      • Well, there are quite a few games for Linux already, and Tux Games seems to be doing fairly well.

        Personally, I don't have enough time to play all the games on Linux I want to play, so...

        Great time to be a Linux user if you ask me :)

  • I don't understand this. I keep on hearing people complaining about glibc; yet for some reason, people keep on using it.

  • I'm waiting for BeerConf

    ... they consider porting the project to Mircosoft Windows[TM], I can only use it under Linux right now.
