[ogb-discuss] Call for Action

,----[ Quote ]
| So unless you can figure out how having 
| OpenSolaris running on millions  of devices 
| everywhere ultimately translates to revenue, I 
| doubt Oracle mgmt will be impressed.  Business 
| is only a popularity contest when people vote 
| with dollars.


Solaris Licensing Changes: The Real Story

,----[ Quote ]
| Letâs move on to people that run Solaris on non-
| Sun servers: No Solaris for you, not yours! 
| Items 1 and 6 make it clear that there is no 
| possible way to legally run Solaris on non-Sun 
| servers. Period. End of story.



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.


OpenSolaris on System z mainframe hangs in the balance

,----[ Quote ]
| The future of OpenSolaris on the IBM System
| z mainframe seems shaky at best now that
| Oracle has acquired Sun Microsystems, but
| the platform's supporters are still
| pleading their case.


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)
