OpenSolaris: A Sneak Peak with Ian Murdock

A little while ago I grabbed some studio time with Ian Murdock as a guest host of Sun's SDN channel.  We chatted about Ian's joining Sun and what he's been up to since he came aboard. 

The main focus was OpenSolaris and some of its new features like the new installer and the packaging system.  Ian also walked me through Developer Preview 2.  Check it out:


"Hmmm what stupid joke is he going to make next?"

(If you can't see the video above, try this.)

I'm quite excited for next month when OpenSolaris makes its official debut. 

And as if all this wasn't enough, at the end of the clip I join the Geek Gadget Guru.

Pau for now... 

My Video Interview with Jon O'Bacon -- Ubuntu Community Leader

Ok, so Jono's real surname is Bacon (just like Redmonk pundit Steveo's real last name is Grady). 

Jono was on the West Coast after having just given the keynote at SCALE and was gracious enough to stop by Sun's studios before a talk he was giving at Google.  (This glorious event also marked my debut as a guest host on Sun's SDN Channel.)


Jono is a big supporter of the foundation to end squirrel-on-squirrel violence.

The Big LUG

If you're interested in seeing Jono live and uplugged (or is that unhinged?) and will be in the Bay Area next weekend you'll want to catch LugRadio Live USA 2008, April 12 - 13th.  This wild and wacky event marks LugRadio's US debut and will be chock-a-block full of open source luminaries (including Sun's own Ian Murdock and Josh Berkus).

Pau for now...

About

I look after Sun's relationships with the various GNU/Linux communities as well as our relationship with the FSF. Last year, my family and I emigrated from Silicon Valley to Austin, TX.
