Ostatic logoOstatic is a new website which aims “to be the most comprehensive web destination for information and insight on open source software and services.” I remember at least two other services with a similar aim, here and here, but they didn’t go anywhere, even if the latter was part of the O’Reilly juggernaut.

On the other hand, Ostatic is part of the GigaOM network and this fact, far from being a guarantee of success, might however help if they don’t just let it die on the vine, like O’Reilly did with CodeZoo. I sincerely hope so, since it’s my opinion that we need a site like this, to supplement the venerable Freshmeat.net.

For now I have subscribed to the blog and am hoping for the best.
