Hi Dario, Lars,

Thanks for reaching out! Unfortunately none of us plan to attend FOSDEM.

Of course, you can run a Qubes demo at the booth :) I would only suggest
that you:

1) Use the latest version available -- currently this is Qubes R2 Beta 3
released just last week -- with all the latest updates installed,

2) Make sure you use a compatible hardware, specifically one that
correctly supports the GPU and power management in Dom0. You might want
to consult our HCL (http://wiki.qubes-os.org/trac/wiki/HCL),

3) Would be nice if you could also show a Windows 7-based AppVM running
in seamless mode :)

And, in case any of you were planning to visit Warsaw, I would be happy
to meet with you and demo and discuss some cool things that could be
demoed on Qubes :)

And, in case of problems with Qubes, I suggest writing to our
qubes-users mailing list, where help is usually very quickly provided:
