RIM shows love for open source at Ontario Linux Fest

Comments

Ontario Linux FestNot only is RIM sponsoring the Ontario Linux Fest lined up to start October 13th. in Toronto, but they’ll be hiring open source gurus there as well. Linux and the like supposedly play a big part in RIM’s internal workings, so what better place to pick up fresh, local talent than a Linux convention in Toronto, a scant two hours drive from their Waterloo home base? Linux is lined up to be a major platform for mobiles in the next couple of years; it’s good to see RIM getting friendly with it at least.

    Maybe this means they actually publish a Blackberry Desktop for Linux. I doubt it since they can’t even put out an OS X client on par with they’re Wintendo offerings. It’s a nice thought though.

    They use linux there for servers and use open source languages to develop in house software, I doubt they are looking for people to do a desktop software for linux.
