The goal of Project Utopia is to enable "plug and play" of a variety of external hardware devices on computers running Linux. "Plug and play" means that when a piece of hardware is attached to a computer, the computer identifies the hardware and responds appropriately without requiring user intervention. Responding appropriately may mean showing an icon on the desktop which allows the user to access the device (for devices such as external hard drives), or starting an application to support the device (for devices such as cameras), or simply starting to use the device (for devices such as keyboards).
Different things that Project Utopia should do:
ProjectUtopia/PowerManagement - HAL now has the capability to manage ACPI, PMU and APM devices attached to your computer. Use this page to discuss.
ProjectUtopia/SoundMixing - HAL can now detect the ALSA streams available on your soundcard. Use this page to discuss.
Wiki is just notes at the moment. Feel free to edit/add.
