Open Your Qube! website startup
Title words when Qube3 had been released in July 2003.
We have started our project on open.cobaltqube.org website
with a title 'Open your Qube!'.
In July 2003, Sun Microsystems released the source code of Qube3 as Open Source software.
Cobalt was one of the small venture companies in Silicon Valley that had
been founded in 1996. And they had been acquired by Sun Microsystems in 2000.
Qube3 is a product that was developed in the age of Cobalt.
After the merger, Sun Microsystems continued to sell Qube3 and they also
supported it as the product of Sun Cobalt sever appliance series.
Sun Microsystems announced the end of life of Qube3, but on the other hand,
they released the software of it as Open Source. By this action, Qube3
software will get a new life from Open Source community.
We, Cobalt Users Group in Japan, were starting in 1998 with great expectation of the future of Cobalt. We hope that we will be able to share the same feelings at that time with you. It is why we are starting up this site.
