Selected Sun product conversations in blogosphere during last week:
1. First impressions of ZFS -- Solaris Jedi, 7/26
In this Solaris Jedi blog, Christopher Hubbell, wrote about his experience moving forward with a new JumpStart server layout. When it came to his data disk, he opted to try finally learning ZFS. After some apprehension, he claims the Sun technology is "painless and a pleasure to use. I'm still in shock from the simplicity. This is fun... I don't miss Linux at all."
2. Popsicles vs Fruitsicles -- ZDNet, 7/27
Paul Murhpy challenges those who say that using the Sun Ray is like returning to the green screen days. He says this is misusing a misunderstood label to create or strengthen an instinctive distrust and "No" reaction colouring all further discussion of the issue.
3. Indiana's Calling, Is Anyone Listening? -- LinuxPlanet, 7/27
Brian Proffitt discusses Project Indiana at length. He feels there are difficulties that arise from the fact that many analysts and media are basing their observations on preconceptions of Linux. He writes, "Mention 'distribution' and you might immediately assume that OpenSolaris is becoming some sort of Linux clone, or some such." Proffitt recaps his conversation with members of the OpenSolaris team at OSCON.
4. Solaris Volume Manager and iSCSI: a problematic interaction - CSpace, 7/25
Chris Siebenmann discusses the problematic relationship between Solaris Volume Manager and iSCSI.
