Default Joyent acquires TextDrive, amicably

According to an announcement on the TextDrive forum, the California company Joyent, which provides web-based team collaboration software, bought web host TextDrive, which was started by Dean Allen, who also developed and supports Textpattern CMS/blogging software. The deal was concluded at the end of November 2005.

The Joyent press release describes both companies and the deal. According to Allen, nothing will change for TextDrive shared-hosting customers except they will get more disk space and bandwidth (nothing to complain of there! — here are the new TextDrive limits and prices) and use of the Joyent e-mail client.

So we shall see how it goes. (I use TextDrive as a host.)
