07 Sep 2011 Bossie Awards 2011: The Best Open Source Desktop and Mobile Software [24556]
Winnners Include VirtualBox VM

Here are the categories for which 2011 Bossie Award winners have been named:

  • Best Open Source Software
  • Best Open Source Desktop and Mobile Software
  • Best Open Source Application Development Software
  • Best Open Source Data Center and Cloud Software

VirtualBox won with this endorsement: "A free-to-use and open source virtualization solution for desktop environments, VirtualBox changed hands from Sun to Oracle when the latter bought the former. That hasn't changed the pace or tenor of its development, though, and the last few revisions -- including a major update to the left of the decimal point -- have continued to pile on reasons to ditch commercial alternatives. For anyone who even dabbles in virtualization, it's gone from useful to must-have."

19 Oct 2010 Oracle Demonstrates Continued Support for OpenOffice.org [23595]
Participates in ODF Plugfest

Good news for the diehard fans of OpenOffice.org: Oracle will be in attendance at the ODF Plugfest in Brussels, October 14 and 15. With OpenOffice.org 3.3 now in Beta, Oracle has demonstrated its commitment to continuing support for the open source versions of its product line while fostering such contributions from the community as localization, quality assurance, porting, documentation and user experience. Oracle's investment in developing, testing, optimizing, and supporting its other open source technologies -- MySQL, GlassFish, Linux, PHP, Apache, Eclipse, Berkeley DB, NetBeans, VirtualBox, Xen, and InnoDB -- is further evidence that open source is alive and well within the Oracle camp.
