Chatting with David Miner of OpenSolaris

Right before CommunityOne kicked off this Monday and OpenSolaris 2008.05 was launched, I was able to grab Dave Miner for a podcast.  Dave is another one of the big brains behind OpenSolaris and is the architect behind the install team. 

My interview with Dave (9:30)  Listen (Mp3)   Listen (ogg)


Dave ready for the big day. 

Some of the topics we tackle:

  • The gauntlet people previously had to run to install Solaris
  • Dave's involvement with Solaris install from member of the original team in '92 to rejoining and taking over the team a couple of years ago.
  • How they've streamlined the install process - Project Caiman
  • Building a LiveCD
  • Where Dave wants to take the install over the next year: jumpstart, server focus, distribution constructor project

About

I look after Sun's relationships with the various GNU/Linux communities as well as our relationship with the FSF. Last year, my family and I emigrated from Silicon Valley to Austin, TX.
