VirtualBox 1.6 and OpenSolaris RC3

I had a spare moment this weekend, so I downloaded the newest release of VirtualBox for my Mac. While a lot of people may use VirtualBox to run Windows on their Mac, I decided to try out the latest release candidate, RC3, for OpenSolaris running in VirtualBox. At the same time I installed OpenSolaris RC3 on an extra AthlonX2 laptop.

If you are not a Sun employee, you will have to wait a bit longer to try out the latest OpenSolaris, but not too long. I expect we had plenty of copies to hand out this weekend at the second OpenSolaris Developer Summit. I love the new OpenSolaris background and menu graphics. The graphics even caught my teenage son's attention as he walked by, "much cooler than your old Solaris", he mentioned.

Like the two earlier OpenSolaris Developer Previews, OpenSolaris RC3 fits on a CD and live boots. I was even able to live boot it on my Mac! Very cool. It should be an interesting week at JavaOne, kicking of tomorrow with CommunityOne
