San Jose, CA (PRWEB) October 16, 2006
iXsystems, an enterprise-class hardware solution provider, announced today that Kris Moore, founder of PC-BSD, will be its new Director of PC-BSD Software Development (AKA “Lord of PC-BSD”). In his new capacity as Director of PC-BSD Software Development Kris will serve as lead developer and manager of the PC-BSD Project. His duties will include development and release of future versions of PC-BSD as well as stewardship of all PC-BSD day-to-day operations.
Last week iXsystems announced its acquisition of PC-BSD, a rock solid UNIX operating system based on FreeBSD. iXsystems’ acquisition of PC-BSD will provide additional resources to the PC-BSD project to increase distribution of PC-BSD and develop future versions of PC-BSD. Development is currently underway for a version of PC-BSD that will allow for easy installation and operation on servers, workstations, and laptops.
“In his role as Director of PC-BSD Software Development Kris will be a key component of our organization. I am confident that his efforts to enhance and manage PC-BSD will result in increased adoption of this robust and user-friendly operating system”, said Michael Lauth, CEO of iXsystems.
With the backing of iXsystems, PC-BSD will be able to establish itself as a supported, professional alternative to other operating systems. “This acquisition will allow me to begin working full-time on the PC-BSD project and provide the project with a solid business backing, which many customers require”, said Kris Moore, Director of PC-BSD Software Development.
