40,000 OpenSolaris Starter Kits

Derek Cicero just announced that the current OpenSolaris Starter Kit is being discontinued so we can  re-work things a bit and come out with a new one. This is good. During the last 14 months, the OpenSolaris engineering team shipped 40,000 kits to community members around the world -- many of who live in rapidly emerging markets in Asia and Eastern Europe. The program was remarkably successful, especially since it was a first effort for us. Huge congrats to the Starter Kit Project on opensolaris.org.

OpenSolaris Starter Kit: Global

We've already sent OpenSolaris Starter Kit more than 35,000 people, and 87% are to developers in countries outside the United States.

Get OpenSolaris

Here's my commercial for the day: You can still get a free OpenSolaris Starter Kit. I see from Steve that we have shipped kits to 136 countries now, and Russia is pulling ahead followed by Poland and then the United States and India. Also, what's really cool is that about half of the requests for kits have come from students. More evidence that a new market is being created by OpenSolaris.

41,000 Registrations on OpenSolaris

I just checked the registrations on opensolaris.org. It's well over 41,000 now. Not bad since just a month ago we were around 21,000 or so. That's a heck of a Starter Kit, eh?

OpenSolaris Starter Kit: Flying

I just checked the registrations on opensolaris.org, and the number is 36,300. Not bad considering that it was coming in around 22k a couple of weeks ago. Seems like the OpenSolaris Starter Kit is really flying out there around the world. I also find it fascinating that the top two countries ordering kits are Poland and Russia -- both of which individually have twice as many orders as the entire United States. So, the U. S. comes in third and then another 108 countries after that. Not a bad start, eh?
