OpenSolaris free CDs halted

,----[ Quote ]
| Oracle has stopped the free OpenSolaris CD 
| shipping program. A posting on the OpenSolaris 
| website discussion mailing list by Oracle's 
| Derek Cicero says the related links and icons 
| have been removed from the opensolaris.org 
| site. Downloads of OpenSolaris are still 
| available from the OpenSolaris downloads site.


Probably good for GNU/Linux.

OpenSolaris, Still Open-Source Software Ready to Serve

,----[ Quote ]
| ZFS is an advanced filesystem that offers
| high performance, near-zero administration,
| file integrity, scalability, reduced costs
| and backward compatibility. Without going
| into a lengthy and complicated discussion
| of storage pools and block allocation
| algorithms, realize that ZFS's design
| features have the enterprise server in mind
| to extract every bit of performance
| possible from a disk-based system. ZFS is
| an intelligent filesystem that can actually
| adapt its read behavior on the fly for
| complex read patterns. ZFS also provides
| built-in compression and encryption.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
