Multithreading: why and how we should use it

This was my first conference talk, done at Debconf 6 in Oaxtepec, Mexico on 14th May 2006. It was changed to a BoF and then back to a talk, by which time I was too busy to spend much time preparing for it. Sorry for that. Here are my notes and my slides (use LinkIt or LinkToolbar to get a "next" button, or edit the number in the URL to go to the next page).

The talk was recorded and video files are available.
