A few OSCON pics

Well, I've passed the expiration date for a useful trip report of OSCON. I'll keep this short and sweet and get a few pictures posted. It was my first time at OSCON, and I'm glad I went. It was great to go and talk about OpenSolaris and Solaris in general; among the fun was our rockstar-style suite (complete with getting admonished by the hotel for talking about OpenSolaris too loud on Wednesday night), the booth, a number of good talks by Bryan and Keith, and a small but fun BoF.

From an smf(5) point of view, I got to chat with one of Apple's launchd guys, which was definitely interesting. launchd had a very different design center and problem definition than the smf(5) team was working with, but ended up with strong similarities to smf(5) in their solution. We also have some diverging functionality too, but the similarities often generate comment. And to dispel any myths... launchd wasn't yet out when we were releasing smf(5) in Solaris 10, and the launchd guys say they didn't see our stuff until they were nearly complete. Chalk it up to "great minds think alike", if you're feeling charitable. :)


Jon Masters, Devon O'Dell, and I showed our stripes and shared a drink at the OpenSolaris suite.

Yes, that was quite an amusing evening. I'm doing an OpenSolaris CD for http://www.linuxuser.co.uk/ at the moment (likely to be Shillix). Here are my photos from the OSCON: http://photos.jonmasters.org/OSCON_2005/
