Thanks to Behdad and the organizers at GUADEC, I will be having a BOF/discussion session tomorrow at 4:30pm to discuss a new class of applications built on Silverlight or Flash and how they relate to the future of the Linux Desktop.

Some of the ideas are clearly derived from Alex and Chris thinking about the desktop; it is heavily influenced by our work on Moonlight; by the recent strides that Adobe has made on creating great looking applications on the web (Buzzword and Photoshop Express) and the future of Gnome.

Join me tomorrow for a discussion on how to launch an effort to create an open-source, RIA-based desktop applications.

I am very excited.
