Open Source Rocks @

This site is dedicated to the support and advancement of the Open Source community. While the contributions you'll find here are meager, it is the beginning of our best effort to give something back in appreciation for the benefits we've experienced over the last few years.

With that out of way, please be patient with us. This site is under construction, but we're working hard to provide useful content. We hope you visit often to catch up on what's happening in our Open Source world.

What's new?

Shameless Plug: I've finally managed to wrap my head around CSS to develop a simple web site for a family member who does QNX development and maintenance.
