Last week takes place at the CNIT, La DÃÂ©fence, close to Paris, the 2012
edition of Solutions Linux. Solutions Linux is a corporate event focused in open source
solutions, and open source project. With some enthusiastic we animate a FreeBSD booth to
promote FreeBSD in corporate environments. We also come with goodies for all the FreeBSD
We discuss a lot with companies and individuals
* who want to starting business projects who are looking for a Open Source OS and
hesitate between FreeBSD and other competitors.
* who are already selling solutions for linux and looking for some help to package their
products for FreeBSD eg. the dolibar CRM  or arkeia  who sells a backup
appliance also available for FreeBSD clients
We met the nfrance crew , a french hosting company located in Toulouse.
nfrance, who only uses FreeBSD in their hosting infrastructure, was looking for some
ways to collaborate and contribute to the FreeBSD project.
Baptiste Daroussin (bapt@) makes a short appearance in a webtv program with Landry Breuil
from the openbsd project to talk about the BSD and the incoming features in 9.1 and beyond.
The tall will be online soon .
A french tech news website talks about us as one of the most visible project of the exhibition.
Of course, pictures will come soon.
We want to specially thanks iXsystems who provides a lot of goodies
(horns, post-it, stress balls). We redistribute them for free and collect donations
for the FreeBSD project. For these 3 days we collect 300 US$ donated directly
to the freeBSD fundation "On behalf of FreeBSD donations at Solutions Linux 2012".
We also want to thanks Daniel Seuffert ds@ for his support year after year !
