SourceForge -- LNUX -- ye old VA Linux Systems???

I didn't even know it was still around!

I'd say Jonathan Sobel made a good decision to cut and run to a company that "MIGHT" actually have a viable product some day. And I say viable, only if your Prez Obama throws them some real BIG CA$H.

Hi, everyone!  Welcome to our October update.  Thanks for

We've just returned to work after our very first all-hands meeting.  The
entire SourceForge crew, along with our colleagues at ThinkGeek, Slashdot,
and Freshmeat, traveled to Chicago to celebrate our tenth year together as
part of the same company.
 Yep, ten years.

Our long history is satisfying because, after ten years, we still help
people build cool things.  But, instead of using this anniversary to
celebrate our history, I find myself thinking about what's next.

We've changed the way SourceForge looks and feels a few times now (perhaps
you've noticed?), and we'll continue to work around the clock to improve
our services.  The question in my mind, though, is: what it will take for
us to be a good provider for *another* ten years?

I have some ideas, but I'd love to hear what you think!  Apart from stable,
secure, fast, and reliable, what should we be?  If anything comes to mind,
please share it with us in our Suggestion Box forum.
