there is too much marketing-speak. 66.130.207.20 23:16, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

That's because it appears to have been copied from here: [1] SQLQuery me! 05:35, 17 January 2008 (UTC)
Well, I hope you think the new page cuts down on the marketing speak. HughesJohn (talk) 16:36, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

The infobox[edit]

Hey, just a note here, the reason I had no logo available in the infobox, is in the hopes, that someone will see it, and upload one. I don't honestly recall if OpenSSI has one or not, but, for that reason, I'm going to re-insert that line. SQLQuery me! 21:43, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

There is no official (or even unofficial :-)) logo for the OpenSSI project. I've taken the line out. HughesJohn (talk) 15:54, 18 September 2008 (UTC)
Well, colour me stupid, OpenSSI does too have a logo, http://www.openssi.org/images/openssi.png "Add OpenSSI logo, which is just OpenSSI in 56 point bold Helvetica with a vertical gradient from #336699 to #ffffff.". I'll try and get a copyright statement. HughesJohn (talk) 09:50, 8 October 2008 (UTC)
So, here is the logo, which Brian J. Watson of HP has released under the FAL. OpenSSI-logo.png HughesJohn (talk) 09:57, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

New page as of 2008-10-28[edit]

So, I've put up my new page. I hope you like it. HughesJohn (talk) 16:35, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Similarities between OpenSSI and TruCluster CFS[edit]

Are not co-incidence but are due to TruClusters being based on parts of Locus Computing Corporations TNC (Transparent Network Computing), the direct ancestor of OpenSSI. (Confirmed in private communication with a member of Locus team. No obvious citeable reference available). HughesJohn (talk) 10:33, 30 October 2008 (UTC)


Any activity in the project[edit]

There hasn't been a new release since 2006, is the project dead? I trialed OpenSSI in 2007 and things were quiet even then. I'd love to hear there is still activity but if there isn't we should update the page to reflect this. Robert Brockway (talk) 22:37, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Nah, it's not dead. There aren't many people working on it but work is progressing slowly. A new release is in preparation. Check out the mailing list and SourceForge CVS to see what's happening. HughesJohn (talk) 15:05, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
