Just a quick note.
Eric gave a great presentation. The space was packed. It was our
biggest meeting in a long time. Great discussion, a bunch of new
people. And importantly, a lot of people hung out afterwards.
Feedback on the space appreciated.
Also, Digital Ocean officially announced FreeBSD as a service today.
Neal Shrader, the DO developer, was at the meeting last night.
He is also speaking next Tuesday on the process, in addition to someone
from the FreeBSD end. I saw Neal's presentation outline, and it will be
a technical talk, covering the design and implementation. We'll
announce officially in the next day or so.
I think it's a big deal. There was actually a strong public push to
support FreeBSD, and while many of us are 'bare-metal' users and
advocates, VM services of all sorts and sizes end up being the 'gateway
drug' for a lot of people who want to play with an OS on the live internet.
