OpenSolaris 2008.11 and Transformers

As you may have heard, OpenSolaris 2008.11 officially launched today. There are a bunch of great features and improvements, such as Time Slider, better laptop support, automated installation, and so on, that you'll be hearing a lot about. But what you probably won’t hear as much about is its suitability for five year olds. Here’s a photo of my son playing Webkinz on OpenSolaris 2008.11 installed on a Toshiba laptop.

And here he is watching Transformers.

OpenSolaris 2008.11 didn’t phase him in the least – he knows to just “click on the fox” to get to what he wants!

Solaris Cluster on OpenSolaris

The source code that went out today for the first time allows Solaris Cluster to be built for and run on the OpenSolaris binary distribution. This is a small but important step in project Colorado.

In other news about project Colorado, Thorsten wrote a great post outlining the various reasons that Solaris Cluster on OpenSolaris is not just a “compile and run” exercise. There are some significant technical issues that we must address.

Finally, I want to point out that Solaris Cluster Express 9/08 was released last week. This build of Solaris Cluster runs on Solaris Express build 97, and contains some exciting new features that have not yet been released in Solaris Cluster 3.2, such as "zone clusters."
