Would you settle for 30 minutes then?

Yes, that would be good too.

Here are more topics that I would like to see presented/discussed.

- The udev subsystem, what is it, how it is useful, ...etc.
- The dbus subsystem, why, how, ...etc.

A repeat of John V's presentation on what happens from booting till you
login would be great too. It has been a while. New distros use different
things now (e.g. init is upstart on Ubuntu, which works differently, there
is no inittab file, ..etc.).
