OpenSolaris Test Farm: SPARC, Intel, AMD

[osol-announce] test farm server interface released. Go get a 15 gig account and test your OpenSolaris software on some SPARC CMT (Chip Multithreaded), Intel Quad Core, and AMD Dual Core machines. This is an outstanding service offered by the testing community, so jump in and take advantage of it. You know, for some of us involved with OpenSolaris for a long time, it's really cool watching some of these projects come to fruition -- especially this one because the testing guys have always been leaders in the OpenSolaris community. And it's great that the systems are based in the U.S. and China. Asia is now very much top of mind in the community. And since the Sun China team was heavily involved in implementing the systems in Beijing that helps us connect some of these communities internally and externally around the world. To me, this is a core community building activity. In this case, engineers offering some critical resources for developers to get their work done. I can only see this project growing. Good stuff. See links and instructions in Jim Walker's announcement above. Also, see Jim's blog and Simon Sun's blog for more info on OpenSolaris testing, and also Robert Sohigian's blog for engineering at Sun China. I know I'm missing some guys, too. :)
