Creating OpenSolaris USB sticks from Windows

A utility like this has been on my list of things to do forever, and I'm \*really\* happy to see that someone in the community has done the work.  Just a caution that I haven't tried it out yet, so no comment on how well it works.

OpenSolaris Live USB Creator (Windows/.NET) ‎(PID0.ORG DevZone)‎

If you do try it out, I recommend build 111, which we just released a couple of days ago.  It's getting pretty close to the end of development for the 2009.06 release, so we'd love some additional testing.

Anyone up for doing a similar tool for Linux (and adding a GUI to the OpenSolaris tool)?

Ben, the 2008.11 usb image is at http://dlc.sun.com/osol/opensolaris/2008/11/osol-0811-rc2-global.usb. If you're looking for images of the 2009.06 development builds, see the announcement messages posted to the opensolaris-announce mailing list, which are archived at http://mail.opensolaris.org/pipermail/opensolaris-announce/
