It's been over a year since the "switching from c# to java" post and the full Linux version is ready and public (although still in beta)!

The really big news is that now the code is being open sourced and it is part of the oVirt open source stack.

oVirt is a new open source stack for virtualization which is being supported by some of the biggest players in the market: Cisco, IBM, Intel, NetApp, RedHat, SUSE and we expect to get more support as the project expands.

As part of launching oVirt we are having a three-day workshop.
The workshop includes sessions to cover the technical projects details, governance, getting involved, usage and much more.
The full git repos (source), site, forums will be launched at the event.

The workshop is open to the public and takes place at Cisco main campus, San Jose, California, 1st - 3rd November 2011.

We are very excited about open sourcing the code, we were waiting for this for quite some time and now it is actually happening.
By opening the code we hope the project will grow faster, become better and introduce new capabilities that users are actually looking for.
We want to provide a true, open alternative in the virtualizatin world.
