I think this an important point to remember in any Free Software
conference we are going to organize. We should clearly state the
speaker should use Free Formats and Free Software for delivery. If he
cannot meet that requirement, he is simply not qualified to present at
a Free Software conference.

 It is indeed bad to promote proprietary software in a Free Software
conference. I believe the said speaker was using his personal laptop.
In that case we could have offered a Free System for him to present.

It clearly shows how vigilant our community is.
