Project Indiana in the POFACS Podcast
By user13366078 on Dec 01, 2007
The german "POdcast Für Alternative Computersysteme" (POFACS) has now published their issue #14. This is the third Solaris related issue (and the fourth one featuring a Sun open source project). This time, it's about project Indiana.
Thanks to Mario for choosing me for this interview, I hope I got the basics of Indiana through. We recorded this interview over Skype, but each party recorded their local audio separately to insure good audio quality.
Speaking of recording, check out their issue #13 which is about open source audio recording and production tools.
One question that pops into my head whenever I hear from POFACS is: What is an "alternative" OS? If you look at Desktop OS dominance, then I guess anything that is not Windows is probably a pretty good alternative. I'm particularly pleased that old Commodore 64 related OSes, such as GEOS (POFACS #7) and some Amiga derived OSes (AROS was featured in their episode #12) are alive and kicking.
I guess we're lucky that POFACS isn't looking at the Unix Market where Solaris turns out to be the dominant OS of them all :).
