Second Annual Document Freedom Day (2009)

Document Freedom

Today the world is celebrating the second annual Document Freedom Day. As a community we have a lot to celebrate and recognize.

  • It is becoming politically acceptable for organizations everywhere to standardize on OpenDocument Format (ODF) for their documents.
  • Microsoft is expected to release information any day now regarding their support of ODF in their latest office suite (and with the ODF plug-in already freely available for their older versions).
About the Document Freedom Day
The Document Freedom Day (DFD) is a global day for Document Liberation with roughly 250 active teams worldwide. It is a day of grassroots effort around the world to promote and build awareness for the relevance of Free Document Formats in particular and Open Standards in general.

GlassFish conquers another operating system!

GlassFish v2 If you check out Apple's download site under UNIX & Open source you'll find that Glassfish v2 and OpenDS and OpenOffice.org are now available for Macs and they are labeled "Staff Picks."  This was all pretty darn quick given that version 2 only came out on September 17 and by the 21st it was up on Apple's site.

The days of isolation are over and Sun realizes that there are developers out there who work on platforms other than Solaris -- we want to give access to products we are involved with to as many folks as we can.

First Ubuntu and now OS X!
