I had a lovely glass of port wine with my close family as the scp(1) program uploaded everything to sortix.org. I hoped I hadn't screwed up the release process somehow and uploaded defective cdrom images. Everything seemed to work. It was time to let everyone know about the release.
Sortix 1.0 was released a bit over two weeks ago and it was well received. It had a bit of news coverage and a surprising amount of coverage from non-English communities. The biggest lesson was that Twitter is a surprisingly good platform to promote Sortix on. I think there's a good deal of people that could be interested in projects like Sortix, but the question is how to reach this audience. How was it received?Sortix RSS Feed
