Highlights from Solutions Linux 2009

Solutions Linux, the largest French Linux & Open-Source trade show, closed it's doors yesterday evening.

XWiki had a booth in the OW2 village, near the entrance. We had three presentations. Two of them were part of the annual OW2 conference and the third one was part of the workshop organized by System@tic.

Open Source Activity Map (by Red Hat)

Red Hat has published the results of a project led with Georgia Institute of Technology. The project's objective was to research the state of open source around the world. Guess what? France is ranked #1 overall out of 75 countries !!

This is the map showing the relative level of open source activity in 75 countries. France is ranked #1 overall. 

All the research's results are presented as an interactive Open Source Activity Map that lets you see how the seventy five countries examined for the project are ranked globally.

The final score of each country is made calculated out of a number of factors including public policy and industry & government practices. 

Now that's good news for France :-)
