    INTRODUCTION:
    -------------

    As promised, our next field trip to Sun Microsystems is happening
    on July 17th... a special SECOND TUESDAY Field Trip meeting.

    Our friends at Sun have invited Unigroup to participate in the
    second meeting of the new NYC OpenSolaris User Group, so we are
    calling this a No-Charge Joint Meeting, and we are looking forward
    to learning about the newly formed NYC OpenSolaris User Group.

    The NYC OpenSolaris group has scheduled Ian Murdock of Sun
    Microsystems to talk on OpenSolaris and Project Indiana.  It
    seems that we all know Ian... as least as the "IAN" in DEBIAN
    Linux ("DEB" is his wife).  See his bio below for more
    interesting information.

    From the information I found on the web, it looks like Project
    Indiana will be an OpenSolaris Binary Distribution whose goal
    is to improve the usability and installation of OpenSolaris,
    and perhaps make it more easier/friendlier/recognizable to Linux
    and Windows users.  Sounds like a interesting project!

    Unigroup will be working on the OpenSolaris Group's schedule,
    so we'll be starting earlier than usual (and we don't have
    details beyond the meeting's start time).  Visit the
    OpenSolaris Group's web page (below) for further information.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
