Newbie presentation and slashdot thread


My name is André Esteves and i live in Portugal. Been lurking your mal and 
trying to get some courage to help you somewhere...

In the meantime, may i ask for your attention to this slashdot thred:

" Open Source Software For Experimental Physics?"

Two interesting open source projects surfaced:


EPICS is a set of Open Source software tools, libraries and applications 
developed collaboratively and used worldwide to create distributed soft 
real-time control systems for scientific instruments such as a particle 
accelerators, telescopes and other large scientific experiments.


Licence: EPICS Open License, which is similar to the BSD license


RTEMS is the Real-Time Operating System for Multiprocessor Systems. It is a 
full featured RTOS that supports a variety of open API and interface 
standards. Major decisions about RTEMS are made by the Steering Committee, 
guided by the Mission Statement. 


License: http://www.rtems.org/license/index.html

The primary RTEMS source image is a collection of software that is licensed 
under a variety of free and open source licenses appropriate for use in 
embedded systems. The following licenses apply to the various components.

    * Primary License which covers most of the source code in RTEMS
    * TCP/IP Stack License
    * RPC/XDR License
    * Webserver License
    * Stanford University Permissive License 

Thx for your attention and keep the excellent work,

André Esteves
