Maybe I'll have time to write something up someday but I have to agree that 
there were a lot of interesting talks. 

Compared to the last two years it was really noticable that we are getting a 
bigger project and popularity has increased a lot. Most people had heard or 
read about Arch and a surprising big number of developers use Arch themself or 
know it quite well.

I tried to talk to most projects I am interested in. Of course I spend some 
time at the KDE/Qt/Amarok booth and discussed about the phonon mess, nepomuk, 
improvements in KDE etc..

I have had talks with guys from Debian, Fedora, Gentoo, FreeBSD and others I 
just forgot atm. It's really interesting to see differences and especially 
those things that we have in common. (Thomas already mentioned it and 
according to my talks we might be able to share more experiences with Fedora, 
Gentoo and probably even more with BSD)

I might have more to tell later. Summing things up this conference is more 
about communication and fun instead of sitting in front of your notebook and 
hack; in fact there was no real need to carry my computer with me.

And last but not least is was just two short. :-)
