This is the best OS news piece since ATI opened their specs! Haiku release next eh? ;)

I'm hoping Sun get really serious about the desktop and end up providing real serious competition for Ubuntu and OSX. Vis-wha? ;)

I think I remember reading that you can dual-boot OpenSolaris and Linux without any trouble- how well does Indiana handle this? If I already have Linux installed on a different partition on the same machine does caiman detect this and add my Linux distro to its boot menu?

I wouldn't be able to dump Linux until I can run JACK under Solaris, but there is no ALSA for Solaris and no plans to implement it yet either as far as I'm aware.

Why would we want ALSA when we have OpenSound? which btw has ALSA compatability. Jack also works on OSS drivers. See this post by Dev Mazumdar: http://www.opensolaris.org/jive/thread.jspa?messageID=149258
