The fact is I failed to mention I had the opportunity to assist to the free sessions given late March at the OpenSolaris Day at Sun Tech Days, at Paris La Défense. It was a very pleasant moment, with really nice presentations by great well-known speakers. I was particularly interested (and impressed) by “The Zen of Free” and “New Security Features in OpenSolaris” presos, respectively given by Simon Phipps, and Darren J. Moffat. I knew them from OpenSolaris mailing lists, and enjoyed to be able to see them in real life.
The end of the days was punctuate by a French talk given by Bruno Bonfils which, with Laurent Blume, are the leaders of the French OpenSolaris User Group (FOSUG).
