Sun Tech Day

By the subject it’s a geek topic, but I don’t think I’ll go too geeky. I’ve just been at the talks and the food the whole day, cos I looked through the labs and they didn’t look interesting. Plus I got feedback from one who went that the lab was sucky.

The topics were fine, but they didn’t really amaze me, maybe because of my own experience. They showed Compiz on Gnome desktop effects to try wow Solaris, but they’re not Solaris effects as other platforms (eg Ubuntu) with Compiz/Gnome have it too. And they showed a Wii-mote screen tracking prototype, which, yeah, I just experienced too. One thing I realize was the VirtualBox that I tried as an alternative to VMWare got acquired by Sun last year.

Tomorrow will be more talks and food, and due to my poor biological facial recognition capability, you might want to come say hi to me if you’re there too.

EDIT: I found some pics of the event today. It reminded me of the giant duke and dolphin there. I knew the duke but I couldn’t understand the dolphin. Until my colleague reminded me that MySQL now belongs to Sun…
