Bars, Booths, and Ballrooms at Comdex

LJH writes "I posted hardware and software highlights from Comdex. Though crowds were greatly reduced, it was obvious that two themes captured peoples interest: Tablet PCs and Open Source.

3. Microsoft will release updates for Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2004 early next summer (codename Lonestar). This update will be free to existing Tablet PC owners.
4. See Peters screenshots of Lonestar.
23. The first Open Source area at Comdex was a hit. Companies had been there individually, but this was as group. Bigger impact. KDE very happy about interest. Was not just hype.
24. Check out Kwallet in KDE 3.2. Layne interviewed George Staikos and Matthew Stakios at KDE booth.
25. OpenOffice.org is excited to learn that a college in Oregon is switching over to its product, as well as a police center."
