Sun's Ultra Computing In 64-bit Has Promise

,----[ Quote ]
| While the system is shipped with Solaris 10, it can run Red Hat Enterprise 
| Linux, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, and Microsoft XP Professional (both 
| 64-bit and 32-bit). Engineers encountered no difficulties installing Debian 
| or Ubuntu. Test Center engineers at one point turned the system into a triple 
| boot system, installing Solaris 10, Windows XP Professional, and Ubuntu 
| Linux, without any difficulty. VMware can also run under Linux or on Windows 
| to potentially expand the number of installed operating systems on a single 
| box.       


OpenSolaris development update, upcoming summit

,----[ Quote ]
| Also of relevance to OpenSolaris enthusiasts is the OpenSolaris developer 
| summit, which will take place next month at UC Santa Cruz. Debian founder and 
| Sun platform strategist Ian Murdock will be a keynote speaker at the event.   



Running Linux on Solaris

| With the new 08/07 Build, Solaris makes it easier to run Linux and its 
| applications on Solaris running on x86 architectures. 


Morton: no merging of OpenSolaris with Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Don’t expect to see key features of OpenSolaris showing up in the Linux 
| kernel, said a top  Linux maintainer. 


Sun's 'Project Copy Linux' not a Linux copy

,----[ Quote ]
| Murdock also refused to talk about Sun's FISHworks project – billed as a 
| NetApp killer. 
| Sun has put some of its top Solaris engineers in charge of a 
| software/hardware effort meant to create a solid network attached storage 
| (NAS) appliance. The company demoed this project to analysts early this year, 
| although it refuses to give reporters the same honor.   
| We did track down Adam Levanthal, one of the FISHworks leads and co-authors 
| of DTrace, at OSCON. He revealed that the product should ship early next year 
| and that it includes some special sauce above Solaris for handling storage.  
| "I'm not going to talk to you about it more than that," he said, rather 
| bluntly. 
| Why not just slap us in the face?
