As promised, our next field trip to Sun Microsystems is happening on July 17th… a special SECOND TUESDAY Field Trip meeting.
Our friends at Sun have invited Unigroup to participate in the second meeting of the new NYC OpenSolaris User Group, so we are calling this a No-Charge Joint Meeting, and we are looking forward to learning about the newly formed NYC OpenSolaris User Group.
The NYC OpenSolaris group has scheduled Ian Murdock of Sun Microsystems to talk on OpenSolaris and Project Indiana. It seems that we all know Ian… as least as the “IAN” in DEBIAN Linux (“DEB” is his wife). See his bio below for more interesting information.
From the information I found on the web, it looks like Project Indiana will be an OpenSolaris Binary Distribution whose goal is to improve the usability and installation of OpenSolaris, and perhaps make it more easier/friendlier/recognizable to Linux and Windows users. Sounds like a interesting project!
Unigroup will be working on the OpenSolaris Group’s schedule, so we’ll be starting earlier than usual (and we don’t have details beyond the meeting’s start time). Visit the OpenSolaris Group’s web page (below) for further information.
