In the last week took place the world's largest computer expo - CeBIT 2010. According to organizers, it was visited by over 334 thousand of people. Among them was also our reader Adrian Widerski who prepared for us a few photos containing Linux accents.

Unfortunately, he did not have enough time to penetrate into the details of individual projects, but definitely the most interesting of which he saw, was a digital table. The project is very much like Microsoft's product called MS Sufrace. The main different is that this table is powered by Ubuntu.

Intelligent desk support also multitouch and it is not using a big LCD screen above, but a projector hung over the table. I think that helped significantly reduce construction costs.

At the CeBIT we could also found Joomla and OpenOffice places, but there was nothing really interesting for people who keep up the withe news on it's websites. An interesting thing was also Ubuntu screenshot at the begin of newsletter German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence (Deutsche Forschungszentrum für Künstliche Intelligenz).

As we can see, popular sentence "the future is open" is becoming real.
