OpenSolaris Developer Preview
By jimgris-Oracle on Nov 01, 2007
Yesterday Project Indiana was born as OpenSolaris Developer Preview. Cool. I believe this is a milestone for the OpenSolaris project, and I think congratulations ought to be offered to those who designed and built the product. I'm also very much looking forward to using it. The reaction from the community has been disappointing, but I understand the reasons why so it's hard to judge too harshly. Opening up is difficult, and building a self-governing community that asserts and operates as a group is just as difficult. These things take time. It's worth it, though. A community is developing, and you are watching it in real time. Messy, eh?
