Since when has that ever made a difference to the slashdot crowd? There has always been some that are willing to jump in and comment without actually reading the story.

I'd be commenting on the interview if the site were available! Stop making stupid-ass blanket statements like that...

Bye bye MySQL! (-1, Offtopic)

Anonymous Coward | more than 11 years ago | (#4071521)

Interesting. everywhere you look, MySQL is being dropped faster than bill clinton's pants at an intern party. I wonder when Slashdot will switch to db2? Slash 3.0?

ACTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 13, 2002--OSDN today announced that SourceForge.net, the world's largest Open Source development web site, will run exclusively on IBM's DB2 database software for Linux -- including SourceForge.net's 460,000 registered users and the 45,000 Open Source software development projects hosted on the site.

The DB2 implementation will help manage the explosive growth experienced by SourceForge.net since its inception -- the site registers approximately 600 new users and 70 new projects per day, and tracks approximately 3.2 million page views per day.

"OSDN is thrilled to partner with IBM," said Richard French, senior vice president and general manager of OSDN. "DB2 is a leading force in the database market and is a perfect fit with SourceForge.net, which has been established as the industry standard in collaborative software development. SourceForge.net serves a very loyal community of IT professionals and developers, and we are confident that DB2 will provide the best technology to keep the site running smoothly and efficiently."

Available to users beginning today, the SourceForge.net mailing list archives is the first portion of the site to run on DB2. This feature catalogs every email received by the site's 11,000 mailing lists, allowing site users to search through email archives as needed. SourceForge.net will be fully converted to DB2 by mid-January.

IBM's WebSphere Application Server (WAS) will be made available on the SourceForge.net compile farm in late October.

"IBM is excited that DB2 and WebSphere solutions have been chosen to help OSDN elevate the quality of service received by SourceForge.net users," said Karen Smith, vice president, Linux Strategy and Market Development, IBM. "We are pleased to be able to demonstrate the power, scalability and reliability of DB2 for Linux, by managing the data for the world's most widely used Open Source development site -- SourceForge.net."

In a separate announcement today, VA Software announced a significant commercial agreement with IBM focused on the joint marketing and sales of the next generation of SourceForge(TM) Enterprise Edition.

I have mixed feelings about this interview. On one hand, I'm pleased to see them confirming the particular direction I see the KDE project drifting towards. On the other hand, I'm appalled to see their blatent disregard for the feelings of the minority.

No, the site wasn't working for me either.

Google link to the interview with Guido here (3, Informative)

Google is our friend. It has a cached link here [google.ca] . The page will take a while to load, unless you turn off images, because they are slashdotted, or reasonable equivalent. But the text is there...

Re:Google link to the interview with Guido here (3, Informative)

geoswan (316494) | more than 11 years ago | (#4073309)

Woops that was the link to the interview with six KDE developers [google.ca] . The link to the interview with Guido Van Rossum [google.ca] is here.
