BOF'd at USENIX

Just got back from the Solaris BOF here at USENIX '04 -- it was great to see so many people there! Hopefully it was useful to you; at the very least, you learned about a beautiful piece of Solaris documentation -- not to mention how I feel about compiler folks. You shouldn't have any trouble finding more information on DTrace, Zones, or Predictive self-healing; information on ZFS and the service management facility will be available after they become publicly available (which should be quite soon). Thanks for coming tonight -- and thanks for all of the kind words tonight about the technology in Solaris 10 in general, and about DTrace in particular. It's tremendously rewarding for us to see you so excited about these technologies!

Looks like you folks had a very positive experience at USENIX. Well done.

Cool ! (and now I know what's a BOF ;\^) ) These Dtrace and Zones and other new S10 stuffs are sounding very exciting !

They are exciting, feel free to play with them. Bryan has the links on how to get them on the right hand side of his blog. There are also the links to the bigadmin discussions there too. The more the merrier!

I was at that BoF and it's made me far more optimistic about Sun than anything which has happened in the last half-decade or so. It's really nice to see one of the former great companies making a serious effort to resume leading the industry again.
