Update on OpenSolaris interworking with Linux, *BSD, and Virtual Box 

Alan DuBoff
June's meeting will have Alan DuBoff of Sun Microsystems speaking on the new 
release of OpenSolaris, formerly known as Project Indiana. In addition, Alan 
will also be discussing some of the open source software currently being 
developed between Sun and the communities. Such software includes Virtual 
Box, OpenOffice, MySQL, Xen/Xvm. 

Alan also currently works in the Solaris x86 IHV/OEM group where he works with 
both hardware and software vendors, as well as working with the OpenSolaris 
community with part of his time. Alan has been working at Sun Microsystems 
for close to 5 years. Prior to working at Sun, Alan was a lead engineer on 
the Kerbango Internet Radio project, one of the early adopters of Monta Vista 
Embedded Linux. Alan worked at VA Linux Systems (and VA Research before 
that;-) where he wrote and maintained the backend of their order/entry system 
for about 1.5 years. He worked on WebVan for a year before going to VA, and 
has been a consultant around Silicon Valley for close to 15 years, working at 
many large companies. Alan has been consulting to the high tech industry for 
more than 25 years. Alan founded and is President of the Silicon Valley 
OpenSolaris User Group (SVOSUG) which meets in Santa Clara, CA, at the Sun 
Microsystems Santa Clara Campus. He has run user groups with IBM, Microsoft, 
and Heathkit in the past, as well as being a long standing member in the 
communities of BayLISA, SVLUG, Debian, and the BSD. He has given 
presentations at the LISA conferences as well as OSCON, JavaOne, and Sun 
Network. Alan is currently involved in a project to port 
flask/type_enforcement to OpenSolaris with a project called Flexible 
Mandatory Access Control (FMAC). This is the technology used in SELinux for 
Madatory Access Control (MAC).
