BlueQuartz Conference 2005/Summer in Nagano

We held BlueQuartz Conference at 1st and 2nd September of 2005, in Nagano, Japan. It was the 2nd BlueQuartz Conference since last year. It was also the 5th conference about Cobalt. See past our conferences; 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004.

From chief of organizer

I cannot tell you how relieved I am, finished the 2nd BlueQuartz Conference successfully. In this year, there are several comanies session who develop or supply BlueQuartz/Cobalt based systems and services. They are not only sells them but also keeps the soul of the appliance. We do not just move from Cobalt to BlueQuartz that has the same user interface. We push the idea of server appliance which had been developed and introduced to public by Cobalt. So we always mind about this concept, "what is the appliance of the server?". And keep going on to the future with all developers and users of course.
It was 5 times conference which including Cobalt Users Conference since 2001. It is also our proud that all four conferences had been origanized by voluntary members of our group. I appreciate for all guys who stood and talked in the session, who offered appliances and devices. And I appreciate for all participants again.
Thank you very much. Let us gather again, somewhere on the net, or somewhere on the planet.
