Developers Flock To Google's SourceForge Rival

Once again, Google is making news. Developers who have adopted their Google Code Project Hosting early are in love. They say that the simplicity of the system is ideal, and there are already thousands of projects being hosted on the site.

According to John Cox, a veteran open-source developer who has installed several small, personal projects on the Google Code site: "The user interface is better for administration. [SourceForge] becomes a little overwhelming when all you need is a bug tracker and repository."

Google Engineering Manager Greg Stein added, "We focused a lot on creating a clean, clutter-free user experience. We are also able to leverage Google's search technology to design a whole new approach at issue tracking. We will also apply search to improve upon searching for relevant projects."
