We are happy to announce the first details on the official FOSDEM 2011 
program!

As keynote speakers, we are very proud to host Eben Moglen, Jonathan 
Corbet and Chris Lattner:
* Eben Moglen will speak about "Why Political Liberty Depends on 
Software Freedom More Than Ever",
* Jonathan Corbet will speak about "How kernel development goes wrong 
and why you should be a part of it anyway",
* and Chris Lattner will close off with a keynote on Clang and the LLVM 
compiler infrastructure.

On top of that, there will be 6 fantastic main tracks, succinctly named 
'Browsing', 'Cloud', 'Frameworks', 'Languages', 'Office' and 'System'.
