[ovSAGE Regulars] May Meeting - May 17, 2012

Just a reminder that this Thursday is our monthly meeting. 

It’s the week after BSDCan 2012 and a few of our regular attendees were at the conference as volunteers and attendees. Lots of interesting things, so perhaps a bit of a discussion of what went on at the conference is in order.

iX Systems left behind a stack of PC-BSD 9.0 64bit DVDs and some FreeNAS 8.0.4 p1 and 8.2 rc3 64 bit discs as well. I’ll bring along a couple of handfuls of them. Feel free to take a bunch and pass them out to anyone who might want to play with an alternative OS. I think I installed PC-BSD 9 with no issues in a VM, which is a step above the RC versions we were playing with at the BSD install fest we did a while ago. (different user group), might have some pictures lying around.

Another topic is the possible Open Source Showcase/Festival that is being planned for the fall. This would be a resurrection of the open source weekend.

I'm expecting a few people to show up this month, so we might have the largest meeting we have had in quite some time. I've even heard we will have a mystery guest - not Ed this time!
