No longer will those of us committed to open source need to use products from companies that do not open their source. This is Bastille day for software on the web. The cracks in Windows dominance on the desktop are visible. Let’s not repeat the mistake of building monopolistic overlords on the internet. We are not interested in making some proprietary stack of applications the Windows of the Web. We hope you agree.
Want a better email client on the web? You can add those features to Joyent Connector Mail. Want to use the best web calendar? Help build Joyent Connector Calendar. And we even offer a free account so that you can contribute and use your code on Joyent’s hosted infrastructure. Let’s not wait for Gle or Yo or M*N or someone else to give us the web we want. We can do that now. Does your mother have a feature request to make the calendar better? Now you can do it. And have your work used and appreciated by people around the world.
Connector and Slingshot. Better than free. Open.
