Pentaho Wins SourceForge.net Project of the Month!

The Pentaho BI Project has been selected by SourceForge.net as the Project of The Month for October 2006! This honor follows our record downloads for the month of September totaling over 100,000 for all Pentaho projects!

Home to more than 130,000 open source projects and more than 1.4 million registered users, Sourceforge.net is the world’s largest destination for Open Source code and applications available on the Internet. SourceForge.net attracts an active global audience, and has spawned some of the world’s best-known open source projects including the MySQL database, the JBoss application server, and the Pentaho BI project.

Sourceforge.net did a nice interview with several of the Pentaho key developers, and will be hosting the interview on their home page for the month of October! To read the interview, visit http://sourceforge.net/potm/potm-2006-10.php .
