OpenSolaris at Intel
By Jimgris-Oracle on Oct 23, 2007
I went along with Ian Murdock, Jim Walker, and John Jiang to meet the Intel engineering team outside Shanghai today. Special thanks to our Intel host Frank Wang for showing us around.
Intel has an impressive Linux engineering operation here in China, so it's great to have them involved in OpenSolaris as well. Ian presented OpenSolaris to the group, which was very helpful to hear as we get closer to the upcoming developer preview release of the binary distribution. Frank will be presenting about Intel and OpenSolaris tomorrow at Tech Days, so I'll have to stop by and catch up on my Chinese.
Very cool day. Even the near death driving experiences dodging the cars and bicycles and pedestrians all mixing on the highways of Shanghai. Driving is interesting here. The traffic is one thing, but this concept of effortlessly poking in on the other side of the road into oncoming traffic is another thing altogether. It seems the lines painted on the roads are mere suggestions. Wild.
