Happy Birthday, Open Solaris!

Just a quick note to wish OpenSolaris a happy first birthday!

I've been truly impressed by the number of people who've participated in the various OpenSolaris discussions over the past year, and have been even more impressed by the numbers of people out there who have submitted enhancements or bug fixes. Your submissions are truly appreciated.

I'd also like to thank the many, many people I've been able to meet at the Front Range OpenSolaris User Group meetings; it's one thing for Sun to open Solaris to the world, but quite another for people to take it and run with it. It's you who have made OpenSolaris the success it is today and not just a bunch of code thrown over a wall.

It's incredibly exciting to be able to talk to people and actually show them what you've spent months and years working on rather than have to wave your hand and say "I wrote the code that does this." OpenSolaris is what has made that possible. We've always been proud of what we've done here at Sun, but opening our code to the world is the best way I can think of to show it.

So, thank you everyone, and don't forget to buy yourself an anniversary T-Shirt!

See you all in the BrandZ and PowerPC communities, and of course on the main discussion forum.

Happy Birthday OpenSolaris!
