Hrmmmm - does COMDEX usually fly people to the conferences?

Heh, if you want any books from bookshops here, I'm willing to buy/send 
you some ;) (my university, the only American one here, has its own 
printshop (a la MIT), so it has lots of Egypt-related books) - or you 
could just buy direct from

Well - the COMDEX is sometime in April 2000, and Gitex I believe is 
sometime in Febuary - unfortunately, I don't think they've started 
advertising for them yet, I read it in PCWorld (Egyptian version(in 
English)) - Coincidentally, they had a review of Windows vs Linux vs BeOS 
- and they naturallyu had a KDE vs GNOME discussion. The article did have 
some errors but it was overall good for public consumption (although they 
appeared to favor KDE more since it was more like Windows)...

One thing though, the MidEast is a HEAVILY Microsoft-oriented 
environment. One of the main reasons, in my opinion is Windows support 
for right-to-left (i.e. Arabic/Hebrew) - It would be cool for a demo of 
Project Pango if people decide to go...

Anyway, I'll post more information once it comes for registration time 
and stuff. :)
