Selected Sun product conversations in blogosphere last week:

2. Introduction to LDOM's - Sparks and White Noise, 3/26

3. The Enterprise Linux Problem - SmugBlog: Don MacAskill, 3/23
Don discusses several open-source OS options including SuSE, Red Hat, Oracle and Solaris. In consideration of Solaris, Don said, "I love ZFS, I love the fault-tolerant stuff it has for when memory or CPUs go bad, etc."
4. Latest ZFS Add-Ons - Milek's Blog, 3/28
Robert discusses the ZFS boot support integration for the x86/x64 platform and mentions that it "greatly simplifies exposing ZVOLs via iSCSI in the same way sharenfs simplifies sharing file systems over nfs."
5. Sun Frustrations - Geek Patrol, 3/22
John won a Sun Ultra 20 M2 as part of the Open Performance contest, but has recently had issues with Sun contacting him to return or pay for the machine. We regret the error, and we are following up with John to fix the mix-up issues at our end.
