OpenSolaris User Group wrapup

It's hard to come to work unhappy after attending an external-to-Sun Solaris event. Despite an exhausting day which started ridiculously early to receive the Sun Chairman's Award for Innovation with the rest of a well-deserving team (see Stephen's post for pictures), I had a great time talking to and with folks interested in Solaris.

The (basic) presentation I used is posted here. I made a few minor changes for last night's audience, but the vast majority of the content is identical. Jan didn't have canned slides -- the demo spoke for itself. You'll be able to see the work he and his team did re-architecting x86/x64 Solaris boot for yourself in an upcoming Solaris Express release.

Ben Rockwood was there with camera and video equipment. He's going to try to post a video for those who couldn't attend. I'm cringing at the idea; watching yourself after a presentation can be terrifying. Personal mortification at a permanent record of my mistakes aside, I hope this is helpful for some people. :)

I look forward to meeting more of you at the next meeting. Congratulations to Alan for kicking off such a great group. Hopefully you'll also be able to see a variety of Solaris engineers at the User Groups starting soon around the world.

I just finnished watching the film clip, many thanks to Ben for taking along his video camera. I have to say I was really impressed with you're presentation. It's nice to see a Sun presentation which isn't sales or a "just the answers" sheet. Would like to have been able to be there, but being in Australia thats not going to happen to soon.
