1995 Technical Conference Review
This was the smallest XTC since the earliest conferences,
with slightly less than 400 people in attendance (including
speakers and X Consortium staff). Besides the fact that
software conference attendance in general is down, several
factors are relevant.
While the focus was as much hardcore X this year as in the past,
it was still a very good conference, and it's a shame it was as
small as it was. Perhaps being in a different climate next year
- There were no major announcements from the Consortium this year.
- X is mainstream now, and people are moving on to more "cutting
edge" technologies. Also, information is far more widely available
now from other sources, such as
O'Reilly & Associates'
- Other conferences are available for X in general, and for specific
key technologies (such as CDE).
Hopefully, several of the technologies discussed at this year's
conference (HBX, D11, loadable servers) will appear in R7, soon.
