While JavaOne doesn't officially get underway until tomorrow, this year Sun Microsystems hosted a free day-long event called CommunityOne. Like this year's JavaOne conference theme, CommunityOne is focusing upon open possibilities and consists of a variety of different sessions to cater to one's interests. CommunityOne has been underway now for just under two hours and there is already a bit of information worth sharing.

CommunityOne had begun with a general session at the Moscone Center with the speakers being Tim O'Reilly (O'Reilly Media), Rich Green (Executive VP for Sun), Ian Murdock (COP Strategist for Sun), and Tim Bray (Director of Web Strategies for Sun). Below are some of the slides presented by Tim O'Reilly.

After Tim O'Reilly's presentation, Rich Green, Ian Murdock, and Tim Bray had discussed Tim's questions for Sun along with accepting audience questions. While answering some of these questions, Richard Green had hinted at things that will be announced later in the week -- it looks like there will be a profound announcement tomorrow morning at JavaOne on Java and Solaris. Tommorrow morning we will be reporting this announcement live during Green's keynote. Outside of the rumor mill, some of the notable points mentioned include "Web 3.0" marking the elimination of the keyboard, the operating system still being relevant for web platforms, the financial benefits of outsourcing coming to an end, and harnessing user generated content. Sun is also seriously considering and looking at ways to financially compensate developers who create and work on open-source projects that are embraced and monetized by Sun in their various products.

This afternoon we will be back with our complete coverage of Sun's CommunityOne 2007 event.
