Software Freedom Day Report!

Hi everybody,

I know I'm late. I should have written this post last week, but I was quite occupied and forgot about sitting and writing the blog post.

The SFD event on Rio de Janeiro was fine! We had an attendance of 36 people and many of them were excited about what the OpenSource could give them.

About 10 o'clock of the morning we started the event speaking about the Software Freedom Day, Open Source and Sun intentions on this world! Next, we had a really great talk given by Magno Cavalcante, RioJUG's Leader and Sun Java Champion, about the Web 2.0 and people's value, including a lot of important concepts about software freedom, market and development.

After the lunch, we've kept talking about open source, showing great features of OpenSolaris 2008.05, VirtualBox and NetBeans. We explained the Sun Open Source University Meetup initiative to the students and invited them to join it! In the end, we had an OpenSolaris installation inside VirtualBox and we raffled give-aways!

Lots were said about the importance of software freedom! And how much the great companies support it, specially Sun!

That's it!
I will be probably posting something more technical here, like the SFD demo about NetBeans+AJAX that I have done.

Cheers!
Jonas

InfoWorld's 2008 BOSSIE Award

Hi everybody,

On this annual Best of Open Source Software (BOSSIE) Info World Award, MySQL got the prize for best Open Source Database!
Check it here: Database

MySQL is just amazing!

VirtualBox 1.5 got the best Open Source Desktop Virtualization Tool! See the link: Desktop Virtualization

A good thing to say is that VirtualBox has became Sun xVM VirtualBox and the 1.6.2 version had many improvements comparing to the 1.5 one! So, VirtualBox today is even nicer than it was some months ago!

OpenOffice got the best Open Source Productivity Suite! Check the link at InfoWorld: Productivity Suite

OpenOffice is very cool and "just what you need" from an Office Suite. No exaggerated fancy graphics, no problematic extensions and compatibility issues, no price ;) . Just easy-of-use and the necessary things to make your work!

Make your life easier!
Cheers,
Jonas
