Sun Microsystems Czech Wins Open Source 2008 Survey

Participants in the Czech Open Source 2008 survey selected Sun Microsystems Czech as the company of the year in the category of companies developing and supporting open source software products.

The goal of the Czech Open Source 2008 survey, organized by the Root.cz portal -- is to support the development of the Czech open source community and present its work to the general public.

A jury of professionals as well as the general public voted for the best software, project, personality, event, blog and company. Approximately 2,500 members participated in the vote.

"The award received from the professional community's vote belongs primarily to our colleagues from the Prague Engineering Centre, who are devoting themselves to building a community of developers and users of Java, OpenSolaris and MySQL,” said Zdeněk Pilz, country manager of Sun Czech. “I'm confident that our collaboration with the open source community will continue to develop successfully.” Sun's Prague Engineering Centre currently employs hundreds of individuals that devote themselves to developing Sun's key open source technologies, in particular the Java platform, the NetBeans IDE, GlassFish and OpenSolaris.

As one of the largest supporters of open source software in the world, Sun is releasing the source code of all its key software products (Java, NetBeans, Solaris, etc.). Sun has also released the design of the UltraSPARC T2 processor under the GPL license. The complete results of this year's Czech Open Source survey are available here.
