Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] EclipseCon stick

+1 for having the stick (I can always use another USB drive, esp. if they're 2 or 4G this year so they can be used as a portable boot drive for trying out new OSes like the OLPC's Sugar)

+1 for something other than the presentation materials, since those are small and can be dl'd from the website.

+1. Putting all the IDEs on a stick would be a great way to get access to stacks you wouldn't normally get without the pain of downloading them. I wouldn't mind having the J2EE IDE to play with, but I don't normally download it. Cheers,

    I like it, if there is more space on the stick, then I suggest
    adding other Eclipse based IDEs also.

    When I read this, I also thought...why a stick?

    I think if someone cares about the M5 downloads, they'll just get
    them like they always do.
    How about some dazzling RCP apps or other stuff that will prompt
    people to look at the things they might not make time to visit/download?

    Like the winners of previous "best app" awards, or other open source
    eclipse apps that will make people think outside their own box?
    I'm sure there are tons of cool apps out there that I won't see
    unless someone says, "look at these."

    Subject: [cross-project-issues-dev] EclipseCon stick

    While chatting with Bjorn it appears that this year again EclipseCon
    attendees will receive a USB stick (don't know the size). However,
    given that this year slides will be made available on the web site,
    this raises two questions:
    a) do we need a stick? (Not sure this is still negotiable)
    b) what to put on the stick?

    I propose that we put 3 platform downloads (win32, linux, mac) and a
    snapshot of the Galileo M5 p2 repository, since the stick content
    has to be made available by Feb 17th and the Galileo M5 GA date is
    Feb 16th.
    So a few questions,
    - would such a content be helpful to you, or will it be outdated by
    the time of the conference?
    - what do you think about this content?
