"This is the Christmas Jim Allchin stole from the hardware industry. We're stealing it back."




Coming to Seattle in May for that other hardware conference?


On your way out, don't just cry in your beer about ruined Christmases -- stay for the hardware unconference where you're in charge.


Instead of telling you to "get prepared" for a software vendor's surprises, FreedomHEC makes you a first-class citizen of the platform.


Forget "There's no mass Linux market!" vs. "There's not enough hardware support!" The chicken/egg dilemma is over. The chickens are busting out.




Who: Hardware engineers and driver developers


What: High-intensity learning, networking and empowerment unconference


Where: Seattle, Washington, USA


When: May 26-27, 2006


Why: Take control of your own destiny and make your hardware valuable to the growing Linux market.
