Google’s Dan Kegel will be keynoting at the 2006 Southern California Linux Expo on Feb 12th. He will be giving a presentation titled “Why doesn’t Johnny run Linux? Or, Overcoming Desktop Obstacles”. Dan will go over some of the main issues identified by the recent Desktop Linux Survey and Desktop Linux Architects’ meeting at OSDL, as well as his own list of issues, and what’s being done to solve them. This is interesting with regard to El Reg’s story on ‘Goobuntu’. Elsewhere, Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols doesn’t believe the rumours.
