Hi Rich,

Well we can tailor the talk to the length of time that we have for the
presentation. When we gave the 'Why Ubuntu?' presentation last time we
fit it into about 50 minutes for the actual talk with a few questions
along the way. It was a bit rushed at the end due to running against the
time we had in the space. But the interesting bit was that we had about
a 30 minute discussion afterwards in just a q&a type of thing.

So optimally I would say that 90 minutes is best. I would say that we
could give it comfortably in an hour and 45 minutes would be the least
amount of time I would want and that will restrict q&a time. This is all
factoring in about 10 minutes or so before starting for prep time.
