I think these later ones (and Tim Bowden's "'professional users', ie,
dba's, small time(?) web/sys admins) are serviced by OSDC,
http://osdc.com.au/, which is essentially an Australian OSCon
(http://conferences.oreillynet.com/os2005/) focused more on developers,
DBAs and web admins than sys admins and kernel hackers (and 2004 even
included some talks in the vein Tim mentioned of "How to better use
Apache" :-)

I don't think OSDC caters to Tim's "serious desktop users (oo.o,
gimp...)" and some of the other more user-centric audience that seem to
be Michael's focus though.
