More OpenSolaris updates
By user12625760 on Aug 26, 2009
As I have lived with OpenSolaris I've got used to the updates occuring automatically as you would with most modern Operating Systems. What is a real joy is that it creates a new boot environment for the updates so in the event that one was toxic you can always just roll back. It also gives you a handy reference as to how many updates you have done. Number 13 has just happened for me:

I'm going to have to bite the bullet on my home server and swith to OpenSolaris soon as the nevada builds stop. Alas with term time approaching I don't think I will be allowed significant down time for a while.
