I am also downloading, in order to try it. For the moment, the only missing thing for me is BlueTooth and Java integration with it. There is a preliminary stack but I think I should participate to make it happen. 2008.05/2008.11 worked fine on my HW.


I had a look and they have bluetooth support for a Microsoft mouse, however, there is no word as to any framework actually being set. There is discussion as to porting the NetBSD Bluetooth framework over but I am unsure as to the status of the project. I remember that they put a freeze on it for a period of time when there were some big cuts and things were uncertain at Sun, however, I am unsure now as to the status.
