A report from JLS

,----[ Quote ]
| Given this context, it makes sense that the 
| 2009 Kernel Summit went to Tokyo. Japan 
| (and the Linux Foundation) did a great job 
| of hosting this high-profile event; some 
| developers were heard to suggest that the 
| summit should be held there every year. But 
| one also should not overlook the 
| significance of the first Japan Linux 
| Symposium which followed the Summit. JLS 
| 2009 is the beginning of what is intended 
| to be an annual, world-class Linux 
| gathering. Your editor's impression is that 
| this event has gotten off to a good start.

| Thanks to PulseAudio, the Linux audio experience will
| become more context-aware. For example, if a video is
| running in one application the system should
| automatically reduce the volume of everything else
| and increase it when the video is finished.

| PulseAudio provides per-application volume controls, a plugin architecture,
| low-latency, networking features, and good application compatibility.
