OpenSolaris back on track.

,----[ Quote ]
| It would appear that the OpenSolaris project 
| is back on track. This is a bit long overdue. 
| The acquisition of Sun by Oracle left a few 
| projects in questionable states. It was 
| unknown as to whether Oracle would continue 
| supporting these open source projects. 
| OpenSolaris was included in that list.


[osol-discuss] OpenSolaris build 134a has closed 

,----[ Quote ]
| Those of us feeling left in the dark might be 
| pleased to know that build 134a, the first 
| candidate for the next stable release of 
| OpenSolaris, has been tagged in Oracle's 
| release branch (in project jargon: "snv_134a, 
| the first respin of 134, closed earlier this 
| week"). A packaged build should be available 
| for internal QA soon, but even if it passes, 
| it will be while some time before the release 
| can be published to the external repo.



OpenSolaris 2009.06

,----[ Quote ]
| Occasionally I get an interesting, off-the-
| beaten-path suggestion on the Request A Review
| page. This time around somebody suggested
| doing a review of OpenSolaris. Why do a review
| of OpenSolaris? Well why the heck not? Itâs
| always fun to check out a different kind of
| desktop operating system. Sometimes you can
| find an unexpected jewel when you least expect
| it. Is OpenSolaris a jewel? Iâll try to answer
| that question in this review.


[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)
