| Simon Phipps, chief open source officer at Sun, notes, however, that "[India]
| is where so much innovation is happening." The award is meant to catalyze
| projects in six Sun-created environments -- OpenSolaris, GlassFish, NetBeans,
| OpenJDK, OpenOffice and OpenSparc. While the competition is not limited to
| open-source programmers in India, Phipps said he was announcing the award in
| India "because that's where I expect the greatest open source community
| growth to come from in the near future."
