Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris Sun Microsystems has delayed the release of two major features the company has trumpeted as reasons to try its latest version of the Solaris operating system. Eric Schrock, a Solaris kernel programmer, said on his blog in April that he's "completely redesigning the ZFS commands from the ground up" after finding some deficiencies.

Disappointing but not terrible

Out of all the new features in Solaris 10 (JDS3, SMF, DTrace, etc.), these were the only two important ones to get delayed. And they've actually been around for a while in beta. Outside of Longhorn/WinFS, Sun defintely comes in second place for the length of a beta program (at least recently).

The main people who are hit by the Janus delay are people looking to do server consolodation, which is generally something on a flexible time table (leave the current servers in place a while longer).
