Hi Jeremiah,

Thanks for your email. We'll also try to add alternate non-MS options to future presentations.

Hello Jeremiah, it was really nice to see you at LinuxCon EU and thanks for attending my talk.
I actually provided the material to Kelly. I will make sure to provide open format in the future to accommodate exclusive Linux users.
Best regards, Ibrahim

Hello everyone,

Thanks Kelly et. al. for the slides. If I might make a request; can
you produce slides and text in an open format in addition to the
proprietary formats you provide? I use neither Word, Powerpoint nor
Windows. In Libre Office on Debian the text in the .doc file is nearly
illegible in parts and I suspect there are missing slides in the slide
decks since some are completely blank.

Since we're discussing FOSS compliance on this list I'll add I'm a
little bit surprised at the widespread use of Windows software and
formats for presentation materials. I had expected the Linux
Foundation to actually have policies that would be more supportive of
Free Software and open document formats.
