Great! :-)

Yes, we know OSv. :-)

All the bullet points above are very interesting. I'm unsure about the
format, yet. Basing on what happened last year, people just stop or drop
by at the booth and start asking questions.

It's worthwhile seeing what Lars thinks (and he is traveling right now,
IIRC) but, in my opinion, what would work best would be to have some
(or, if possible) all the above ready to be shown upon request, and do
right that when interested people approaches the booth. Personally, I
think points 1, 2 and 3 would be the ones with the best impact on
(potential) users.

About the timing, I don't know whether we are organizing things in slot
or what... I guess it'd depend on how many demo request we'll get. What
we did last year with the XenOrchestra project was to pickup one hour
(or was it more? I can't remember) during which they were fine with
staying at the booth with us and showing their stuff, as I tried to
explain above... Would this work for you?

Of course we'll have flier etc saying that OSv people will be present at
the booth with something cool to show at that specific time.

Thanks, and the same to you. :-)
