OW2 Tagline

During the 2007-2010 period our tagline was "Leading Open Source Middleware." We inaugurated some new collateral at the 2010 Annual Conference where we used a new tagline The open source community for infrastructure software reflecting the evolution of our code base. 

OW2 now hosts some one hundred open source projects spanning application platforms, components, middleware and tools for the development, deployment and management of distributed applications.

This tagline is also a reflection of our vision: Software is not just about lines of code. It’s about people. Those who do the writing. Those who do the integration. Those who do the training. Those who do the maintenance. Those who run it. Open source software is also about sharing with people. Sharing expertise. Sharing experience. Sharing opportunities. Sharing the same commitment to technology excellence and user satisfaction.

This vision is reflected in the new OW2 Brochure.
