This talk will present the different layers that
handle input, from the key that gets pressed or the
mouse motion to the applications, all the way through
the kernel drivers, X drivers and libraries, in the
case of the OpenBSD/NetBSD wscons driver and the
current and future X.Org server. It will cover stuff
like keyboard mappings, touch-screen calibration,
multi-pointer X or input coordinates transformations.
It will show some problems of current implementations
and try to show how current evolutions can solve
Matthieu Herrb is maintaing X on OpenBSD. I've been
using X on various systems (SunOS, NetBSD, OpenBSD,
Mac OS X,...) since 1989. He has been a member of
the XFree86 Core Team for a short period in 2003
and is now a member of the X.Org Foundation BoD.
Matthieu Herrb works at LAAS a research laborarory
of the French National Research Agency (CNRS) both
on robotics and network security.

The X.Org project provides an open source implementation
of the X Window System. The development work is
being done in conjunction with the freedesktop.org
community. The X.Org Foundation is the educational
non-profit corporation whose Board serves this
effort, and whose Members lead this work.
The X window system has been changing a lot in the
recent years, and still changing. This talk will
present this evolution, summarizing what has already
been done and showing the current roadmap for future
evolutions, with some focus on how *BSD kernels can
be affected by the developments done with Linux as
the primary target.
