Segment Two- The Solaris Open Source Community
We will be joined tonight by Jason Perlow and Dennis Clarke to talk about the Solaris Open Source Software community and why there needs to be one. We will focus on who blastwave.org is what they are doing. Plus we will talk about SUN’s open source initiatives with Solaris. The key focus is why what SUN is doing is of importance to Linux users and new developments and improvements with Solaris 10.
Jason Perlow is Senior Contributing Editor with Linux Magazine and co-founder of MySolaris.org, a new Open Source community website for Solaris users. He is also the founder of eGullet.org, the
internationaly reknowned food news and discussion web site.
Dennis Clarke has had a considerable career in IT spanning several decades that has included military, adademic and aerospace. At Lotus Development Corp he was part of the ‘Notes’ development team. The Lotus people had a vision for running this Notes product on Solaris, SunOS, SCO ODT, HPUX and AIX. While there he spent a lot of time working on the UNIX variants and eventually settled into Solaris and OS/2. This led to work with larger Sun servers on both Sparc and x86 as the Lotus Notes server ran on both.
Presently Dennis is the caretaker at blastwave.org which is reaping a wonderful crop of open source software options for Solaris users. Dennis co-founded blastwave.org a few years ago in response to a need for an Open Source distro for Solaris. Sun does a wonderful job of creating a fully threaded kernel for many processor environments but lacks in the
area of up to date tools that we all need.
Thus blastwave was formed and organized with the primary source of open source software for Solaris users and everything is delivered with an Debian like mechanism. Blastwave has 700+ software titles and a 4Gb distro DVD.
