[News] (Open)Solaris Still Wants to be Like GNU/Linux

Hash: SHA1

OpenSolaris 2008.11 pre-release, The year of the laptop?!

,----[ Quote ]
| I've always been a Unix junkie, of course mostly running Linux for a decade 
| now, but Solaris is starting to look more and more like a real modern option. 
| We use a lot of opensolaris at $dayjob mostly just because of its wonderful 
| filesystem zfs. I have to say that I am excited about opensolaris much more 
| than I ever was with Solaris proper! With older releases, the non GNU 
| userland was just simply painful and by my "sense" pretty stupid in many 
| ways. Most of the pain is now gone with the new opensolaris releases. Since 
| the release of opensolaris 2008.11 is pretty close (well it's November now 
| already), I decided to snatch the pre-release iso and take it for a spin on 
| my HP Pavilion 6700 laptop!         


OpenSolaris 2008.11 release candidate available

,----[ Quote ]
| The OpenSolaris developer community has made the first release candidates of 
| OpenSolaris 2008.11 available. OpenSolaris 2008.11 is part of "Project 
| Indiana" which aims to create working binary releases based on the 
| OpenSolaris source code. The announcement notes that the minimum memory 
| requirement for the release candidate is 768MB, with the plans to lower that 
| to 512MB as the system moves to final release. The minimum memory requirement 
| is important, not so much for physical hardware, but for when OpenSolaris is 
| being used within a virtual machine.       



Red Hat Linux trumps Unix on TPC price/performance test

,----[ Quote ]
| In a recent independent test, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5 Advanced
| Platform trumped all other operating systems that process more than 1 million
| transactions per minute -- and at 22% lower cost than its next closest
| competitor.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
