Linux and OpenSolaris Together

We held a joint meeting of the Beijing Linux User Group (BLUG) and the Beijing OpenSolaris User Group (BJOSUG) last Tuesday. The speaker was Louis Suarez-Potts, the OpenOffice.org community manager at Sun Microsystems.

Louis not only talked about the scheduled release of OpenOffice.org 3.0 in September, but of the opportunities for innovation and sharing which are available in open communities.

He also talked about the opportunities for profit that come out of working on open code.

One example he gave was Red Flag 2000, which took the OpenOffice.org code and enhanced it to meet the demands of Chinese users. (A special thanks to Red Flag 2000 for sponsoring the beverages for the event.)

Pictures from the meeting can be found here and here.
