I have an interesting idea:

Put the new xen 4.0 stuff on there, and set up a live failover system.
http://dsg.cs.ubc.ca/remus/

You can then take out the network cable whilst people are doing...
something, and be like WOW!

At least I think it's cool anyway :)

You could also demo xen's live migration, and move a server doing some
work that people are watching to various servers.

Not as relevant to the desktop, though, so maybe I'm just pegging out
the geek-o-meter.
