EuroBSDCon 2004 ONLamp report has an article up about EuroBSDCon2004. The EuroBSDCon site has PDFs of (nearly) all the presentations, some of which are well worth the time to read.

Take some time to read Jordan Hubbard’s keynote (pdf) – Jordan was one of the original folks behind FreeBSD and is currently a mucky-muck at Apple. Dru Lavigne’s “But I am not a developer…how can I contribute to open source?” (pdf) is also worth a look, along with a large number of other more specific presentations.

If you see nothing else, look at this picture of Jordan Hubbard’s talk, and read the slide behind him. That’s right, folks: we are the mainstream, not the margin.
