Aim for 45 minutes. Slots are 1h, but people move in and out on the 
hourly edges anyway, and then there is some time to resync, and get 
stuff set up for the next talk, etc. So aim for 45 minutes, if it is 
a bit more, then no problem, you will get stopped at the hour.

Developers and advanced users, i think full house easily (in this case 
50 people), everyone is very friendly and helpful on fosdem.

I know, SUSE has a prague office :)

All sounds good, but you will have to tone it down to ~45 minutes.
