How Linux Distros Became Boring (and Fedora's Plan to Put Boring Where It Belongs) - Matthew Miller, Red Hat

Traditional Linux distributions don't generate much excitement anymore. In some ways, boring is good at the basic OS level, but community distros need user and contributor enthusiasm to survive. This presentation looks at how the world has changed over the past decade, and where interest in the open source world has gone. After looking at that landscape beyond the distro, Matthew examines new distributions which are worthy of buzz and older ones which thrive on "boring", and discusses the Fedora Project's plans for finding our own balance with the "Fedora.next" initiative.
