The organization of LSM in Dijon was completely broken, also the
selection of rooms for the groups and the talks, the information to the
visitors what is happening on the event, complicated burocratical
process to get a social event ticket, ... I was really disappointed. I
asked my co-workers here at Mandriva after the event how other LSMs
were, and they told that LSMs in Bordeaux were good, and LSMs at other
locations similar to the Dijon disaster. And as Bordeaux people do not
want to make an LSM any more, it was clear for me to do never again a
Printing Summit on an LSM and on the LinuxWorld Expo in San Francisco
last year I decided to do the next Printing Summit in the US, to get
more important people onto the event.
