I went to OSDI last week. It was really great to see so many smart people gathered same place. I saw lots of people whom I only knew thru Internet and even some that I only wanted to meet. (AST for instance). Nice to see that OS research is slowly coming back.
I made short work in-progress presentations of our Mach tuning work. I though that some people got quite interested. Main question is do Apple and FSF care about their products performance enough to overcome Not Invented Here syndrome?
