Speaking at FOSDEM'21 on Sunday

Just wanted to share a quick note that I'm doing two presentations at FOSDEM'21 in the retrocomputing devroom, on Sunday. Check the schedule for topics and times. I'm doing a "lightning talk" that's meant to be a fun, fast-paced talk about "Why your PC only has 16 colors." It's actually about the 16 text foreground colors, and 8 background colors - and why they look the way they do. I'm also doing an hour-long talk about FreeDOS. It's a bit of history, a bit of current status, and plans for FreeDOS 1.3 (and a future "2.0" someday). FOSDEM'21 is completely online this year, and the website says you don't even need to register to "attend" the presentations.

Did you miss Jim's presentation at FOSDEM? You can watch the (pre-recorded) talk on our YouTube channel, as Working on DOS in 2021
