General Discussion / Farewell
« on: July 28, 2016, 07:36:36 pm »
It was around 12 years ago at this time that Scott Ullrich and I got started on pfSense, known as "projectx" until November 2004. Prior to that, Scott and I were working on his commercial firewall product, Moatware. In 2003-2004, I started working on m0n0wall as well. When Moatware closed up shop, we decided to start an open source project and see what happened. If it were successful, we could build a business around it. Initially, I wasn't sure what to expect. 

With the initial help of many volunteers, and later employees and many more community volunteers, we've been able to build something great. The Google Trends line tells the story.

We've taken over the open source firewall distro world. No one else even comes close.

Though we've announced that I'm leaving, I've not said where I'm going. I've accepted an offer to join Ubiquiti Networks to lead a proprietary software product, unrelated to pfSense. Today is my last day of work here. Out of respect for what site we're on, let's not discuss that here. I'll be starting at Ubiquiti on August 8, so we can discuss Ubiquiti on their forum if you're interested. To address the concern a number of you communicated privately, I was lured away, not driven out.

From now on, I'm reachable at I'll be back here on the forum from time to time.

It's been an incredible experience to work with and meet so many of you. I've made friends and contacts all around the world that will carry on long into the future. My thanks to everyone who has contributed in any way over the past 12 years.
