As you can read in the official press note, today is the 4th anniversary of eBox Platform as a open source project. What a coincidence, just two days ago was my first year anniversary as an employee at eBox Technologies, the company that supports the eBox development and offers all the professional services related to it.
The experience of an entire year working with the rest of the eBox team has been very positive. In this last year eBox has improved a lot and I’m very proud of being part of it. In fact, I started to work with part of the current eBox team during the spring of 2007, while I was doing developing ANSTE project, specially designed for the automatization of the integration tests of eBox Platform. But now, with a company fully backing eBox development, I believe it is our opportunity to make eBox the best Linux Small Business Server and the first viable open source alternative to Windows SBS.
I don’t want to finish this post without giving thanks to all the people that has contributed to eBox or used it during these four years. This has been a great year but I’m sure the next ones will be even better. And don’t forget to stay tuned for the 1.4 release that will be out just in a couple of months from now!
