OpenSolaris 2009.06 Review in Ars Technica


Ars Technica's Ryan Paul examined OpenSolaris noting that this third major release "introduces support for SPARC hardware and also brings improved Windows interoperability and advanced virtualization capabilities. Along with 2009.06, Sun is also announcing the first-ever release of the OpenSolaris ARM port, which could bring the operating system to mobile devices."

Ryan highlighted the increase in prepackaged software to 2009.06 as well as the introduction of Project Crossbow and time slider. "The time slider, which is probably my favorite OpenSolaris feature, got several enhancements in 2009.06. The new version has a button for manually initiating a snapshot and has support for deleting snapshots. There is also a new tool for exploring the version history of an individual file," he noted.

The reviewer then turned his attention to the OpenSolaris port for the ARM architecture, providing some history as well as the steps the project has taken with 2009.06. "The OpenSolaris ARM port is also a promising development that illustrates the growing versatility of the operating system," Ryan concluded.
