One of the things I really enjoy about JavaOne is getting to meet other Sun employees from around the world whom I've only corresponded with via email or talked to over the phone. Earlier this week I got to meet Jaroslav "Yarda" Tulach from our NetBeans team in Prague.
I had recently learned that Jaroslav, on his own time, had packaged NetBeans for inclusion in Mandriva 2008.1. This effort also served as the basis for the work needed to get NetBeans into Ubuntu. I had planned to blog about this before JavaOne but things got too crazy. Now I'm able to post the entry and with a picture to boot!
Not only that but at JavaOne I learned from Tom Fitzsimmons of Fedora/RedHat that Jaroslav's work to get NetBeans into Fedora is coming along nicely and should result in NetBeans getting in a update for Fedora 9. Tres cool!
Jaroslav, this Bud's for you (the real Czech kind not the crappy American brew).
