Following the AGM at 7.00 p.m. - UKUUG members AND non-members are invited to 
attend the after AGM talk by:

Michael Meeks - Distinguished Engineer at Novell

'The Linux Desktop, present and future'

A light-hearted look at the desktop, from past to present, to Novell's role, 
and vision. Michael will prod some of the new toys coming into the desktop, 
from promising technologies to curvaceous applications, and meditate on the 
wonders of our new on-line world. 

Michael will shamelessly plug whatever project is interesting today, and 
attempt to wildly extrapolate the near future, for people's amusement - to 
rob Gascoigne: "I never predict anything, and I never will!".

Michael is a Christian and enthusiastic believer in Free software. He very 
much enjoys working for Novell where as a member of the Desktop research team 
he has worked on desktop infrastructure and applications, particularly the 
CORBA, Bonobo, Nautilus and accessibility, amongst other interesting things. 

He now works full time leading the OpenOffice.org team. Prior to this he 
worked for Quantel gaining expertise in real time AV editing and playback 
achieved with high performance focused hardware / software solutions.
