Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris "Sun Microsystems has gone totally native. Customers can now run unmodified SPARC/Solaris applications on x86 systems thank to a partnership with Transitive. The two companies also plan to craft a new package for running native x86 applications on SPARC machines. Transitive this week announced that the long in beta QuickTransit for Solaris code has moved into production form. It even gets a Solaris Ready Logo and all."

This is great progress, but I think the performance hit is a bit too much to tempt me at this stage. There are a few areas I could definately use this, so I'll watch this over time with much interest.

I'll even give it a shot to investigate compatibility.
