As of a little while ago, the official bits for OpenSolaris 2008.05 went live, at the distro's home site, opensolaris.com
While it may seem odd to say, I view this day more as a beginning than
an ending (though I am more than happy to call an end to the 60+ hour
weeks that went into building it!). It's a beginning in many ways, but
I'll just say that while we've shipped an image and loaded up a pretty
good number of packages into the repository, most of the functionality
we plan to ultimately have isn't there yet, not to mention the number
of packages we want to have in the repository.
At the moment I'm
too worn out from the weekend at the OpenSolaris Summit to even attempt
to write anything technical, as it likely wouldn't make any sense, so
I'll just keep this short and close with a big THANK YOU to everyone on
team for all the work they've done in getting us to this
milestone. It's time to feel good about what we've done.
Look forward to seeing lots of you at CommunityOne
