I'd be willing to do a FreeBSD related talk, from things like getting=20
started, the ports, administration, updating, getting help, hacking the=20
kernel, hacking the ports, the PR system and how to get your stuff=20
committed.  Demoing some of the niftier features of FreeBSD such as jails,=
geom_gate, linux ABI, MP-SAFE subsystems, etc.  I'm in the process of=20
writing a company FreeBSD admin guide that I could probably use to the=20
base of the presentation.  I'd really like to see a good OSS video=20
editing/processing tutorial ie. avidemux2+mplayer+transcode+dvdauthor. =20
