Not Your Mother's Favorite?

Neither was I.

But that's OK.

How many people do you know who can write massively parallel business-critical applications for the world's most secure data centers from their cell phone while their boss chases them around the storage racks with a chain saw?

Not many. Those of us in the Sysadmin and Developer Community of OTN think that's pretty cool. So we've gathered a few resources to make it a little easier for you to become familiar with Oracle Solaris 11 Express.

White Paper: What's New in Oracle Solaris 11 Express for Developers

How the development tools in Solaris 11 Express streamline the application development process, how Containers and ZFS simplify testing, how to migrate Solaris 10 applications to Solaris 11 express, and more.

OTN Live video: What's Great About Solaris 11 Express for Developers

George Drapeau, from Oracle ISV engineering, talks about the capabilities of Oracle Solaris 11 Express that will interest application developers, including the use of Solaris 10 branded zones and new DTrace probes. Also why a potential customer would want to run my application on Solaris 11 instead of Solaris 10.

Oracle Documentation: Software Developer Collection

Over a dozen developer guides for topics ranging from application packaging and device drivers to SPARC and x86 assembly language. A gold mine. Don't miss the complete set of manpages.

Don't forget the Sysadmin and Developer Community Home Page on OTN and the Solaris 11 Express Product Page on OTN

I'll post more resources over the coming weeks.

    What is the use of this Os if your not allowed to use it anywhere? The otn-license says you're not allowed to use it anywhere else then for testing and prices are nowhere to be found.
