Solaris 10 move...
By Ludo on Jan 31, 2005
For building and testing Directory Server, I don't need the leading edge operating system (and in fact, it is better to keep a referenced version). So I've never taken the time to upgrade. Now that Directory Server 5.2 patch 3 is done and waiting for Sun Java Enterprise System 2005Q1 to be released, I've decided it was time to give my workstation and desktop environment a little lifting. After rebooting the workstation over the network, and clicking a few times the Next button, the upgrade procedure started and about 20 minutes later, it was done: Solaris 10 was booting and the new login page showed up.
While I was in the mood for change, I've also changed my window manager and desktop environment for the Java Desktop 3. It's slick and FAST... I'll be exploring Solaris 10 features and changes over the next days. But for sure, I'll be recommending my coworkers and others to move as soon as possible.
