Oracle and SUN I just emerged, blinking, from the world of Skyrim, only to realise Sun Oracle has released the 11th version of Solaris (well, technically it's the 7th, but okay, we'll roll with it). I'll be honest and upfront about it: Solaris is totally out of my league, and as such, it's very hard for me to properly summarise what this release is all about, so I won't even try.

Actually Larry been a big proponent of it for ages

He also predicts something like the iPad in 1995 ... these guys aren't stupid ... I wish people would stop pretending they are brighter than likes of Gates, Jobs and Ellison.

In the same clip he is also talking about downloading and installing an OS over the internet ... something we have only just achieved.


Yeah, I remember when he went full on in the late 90s with networking computing, had some crappy product and then gave up. He never was able to productise it though effectively, like Gates with tablet computing. There's another video floating around with Steve Jobs talking about "NFS dialtone" from 1997 just after NeXT got purchased by Apple. Similar concept that Chromebook is doing.
