Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris "Sun's Ian Murdock gave a presentation about OpenSolaris at LugRadio Live this past weekend. He hopes to expose open source enthusiasts to unique Sun technologies by creating a cohesive distribution that will provide a complete environment that is adequate for day-to-day use. This will involve bringing together the Solaris operating system and a diverse assortment of open source community projects and "adding a package management system to hold all these pieces together," Murdock stated. The final release will take place in May and the distribution will adhere to a six-month release cycle, just like Fedora and Ubuntu."

RAID SATA support still not there

I really would like to have Solaris on my laptop but it still doesn't support SATA RAID controllers like the VIA VT6421.

The only way to use them under Solaris is to do a BIOS emulation configuration that my BIOS doesn't support. ;)

So I keep on waiting for the day Solaris supports my controller. All other OS are quite happy with it.
