Speakers and topics for next year for the BLU

We're looking for ideas for speakers and topics for next year. 
I'd like to have someone who can talk about the different virtual machines, 
such as VMWare, Win4Lin, Plex86, and others that might be relevant. 

AFAIK, Bochs is an IA32 emulator, not a virtual machine per se although you 
could use it to run something like Windows.

I'm talking to Novell to see if I can get someone from Novell to speak, 
especially since Novell moved its headquarters to Waltham and Ximian is 
just a few blocks away from MIT.

A few people suggested a meeting on POSIX thread programming (I agree to 
present this if I was unable to get Dave Butenhof). Embedded Linux is 
another topic we've had before, but is of interest. 

Another area I'd like to explore is areas where Linux is used in products, 
but we never see, such as telephone switches. 

Rather than have a caucophany of voices on what would be interested, what we 
could use is for people on this list either to volunteer or help us obtain 
a good speaker.
