Compiz on Open Solaris!!!

Compiz is an open source 3D window manager and works great for Open Solaris!

Just download compiz and run the installer!

Download!

sh compiz-0.6.2-for-solaris.sh should do it for you!

A pre-requisite is that you need a nice graphic driver. An NVidia card should serve the purpose.

Re-login to experience the compiz magic! The compiz icon should appear in your panel through which you can configure compiz settings.

Web Developer Summit 2008

Am writing this post from the Web Devloper Summit, Delhi! Am too tired to take my cab after my long presentation and demo on Netbeans!

Sun is organizing the Web Developer Summit across 5 cities in India (Bangalore, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad and today in Delhi). The summit is intented to spread awareness of Sun's technologies amongst ISVs.

The day kicked off with an introduction of Sun and its strategies followed by a presentation on Sun's hardware and software portfolio. Yousuf then spoke on Open Solaris followed by a Netbeans presentation and demo by me.

The ISVs present were attracted by the ZFS and DTrace features in Open Solari and by some cool netbeans editor features and the build in UML, Ruby, SOA and Web Services features of Netbeans!

Do watch out for the 2 day workshop that is going to happen in the same 5 cities where ISVs can get a hands on experience using Solaris, Netbeans and other cool Sun Technologies..

Here's Yousuf presenting on Open Solaris today at the Delhi Summit.
