Segment Two- The Solaris Open Source

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.
