Jaris Video with English Subtitles

Check out Shoji Haraguchi and his introduction to Project Jaris in Japanese with English subtitles. And you don`t have to listen too carefully to hear my camera going off throughout. Just 37 seconds in: bam, bam, bam! Freaking loud camera. Images here.

Jaris at OpenSolaris Hot Topics Seminar

I stopped by the OpenSolaris Hot Topics Seminar last nite in Jingumae. The guys from the Japan OpenSolaris User Group (JPOSUG: portal, forum) were talking about Jaris and other OpenSolaris technologies. About a 100 or so people were there.  Kotaro-san, the Jaris technical leader, was there in the early evening, but I missed him because I was busy in the other room on a call with some guys in the U.K. Damn. Oh, well. Next time. Jaris made its way in front of 300 people in the last two days, and I`m hearing that developers in Tokyo, and even around the world, are taking notice. Cool. This could get interesting.

Jaris & OpenSolaris at the Tokyo Developers Summit

It was great to see Hisayoshi Kato, Taki Yasushi, and Masafumi Ohta present OpenSolaris to more than 200 people at the Tokyo Developers Summit this afternoon. See the video (Japanese language only) starting around the 18:00 mark here. And out in the booth the Japan OpenSolaris User Group was showing the new distribution based on the OpenSolaris operating system -- Jaris.

Welcome Project Jaris to the OpenSolaris Community

"We hope we can contribute to growth of OpenSolaris in Japan and to the continued evolution of OpenSolaris around the world." -- Kotaro-san, Leader, Project Jaris

And with that, Kotaro-san announced (in English and Japanese) Project Jaris to the OpenSolaris community. Welcome, guys! It's excellent to have a new distribution based on OpenSolaris technology right here in Japan. This project will absolutely help us build a developer and user community in Japan, there's no question about that. It's also very interesting that the Jaris guys are reaching out to Windows users with this distro. If we are to build a large user community here, those are the people we have to talk to. Very smart.

The Distros

The LXF Guide: OpenSolaris distros: "It's fantastic to see development flourishing in the wider OS world beyond Linux, and there has never been a better time to broaden your Unix skills and try something new." -- LINUX FORMAT

To get the OpenSolaris distributions, go to the downloads page on opensolaris.org. Oh, and don`t forget that one more is coming: Jaris.

Jaris: A New OpenSolaris Distribution in Japan

So very cool to see a new distribution of OpenSolaris right here in Japan. I love that logo, too. Building an OpenSolaris distribution in Japan specifically for this market is a fantastic idea. I look forward to meeting these guys at an OpenSolaris event in the future.
