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.

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.

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.

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

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.
