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."

I have this 8 ports SATA PCI-X card (no hardware raid). It fits into an ordinary PCI slot. It gets automatically detected by Solaris at install. Works flawlessly.

(PCI-X slot is for server mobos, in that case achieving >1 GB/sec).
