Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris Sun is rolling out the latest update to Solaris 10 with enhancements to Solaris Containers, tighter integration with IPSec and upgrades to its Logical Domains technology. The updated Solaris also includes the work Sun and Intel have done over the past two years to optimize the operating system to take advantage of the power, management and monitoring capabilities in Intel's new Xeon 5500 series processors, code-named Nehalem. The seventh update to Solaris 10 comes a year before the planned release of the next-generation Sun OS.

It's been great to have free access to a technologically advanced operating system, across Solaris release, Express and OpenSolaris.

Let's hope they keep coming under Oracle.

If it means that they will continue pusing opensolaris towards the desktop in addition to their current market then great. Look at this http://blogs.sun.com/erwann/entry/new_time_slider_features_in and tell me that OpenSolaris on the desktop doesn't kick ass

I don't know, if it's as hush-hush as some of the posters here have said, it doesn't sound that great for its openness. NDA plus Open Source doesn't usually work out too well.

You wouldn't happen to be one of those "omnipresent people close to the matter" right here in our very midst would you?

So, Solaris, OpenBSD, NetBSD, DragonFly, Ubuntu, a Fedora preview, Windows 7 RC, Knoppix 6, all within a week or so - Zoiks!
Thank heavens for virtual machines or I'd never find
the time to test drive them all.

I believe the VMs are for the Microsoft Line of products. Nothing's better than installation on bare metal.

I know. For the OS connoisseur, VMs are kinda like condoms for system software.
