So this may be my last blog entry as a Sun employee, looks like Oracle will get the go ahead from the EU next week.
If this blog does go away, I wanted to say what a pleasure it's been working with you all on the Intel Atom Networks with OpenSolaris.
Checking out B130, you can see that work has been done in the Xorg and shutdown menus areas. It looks like it all works apart from the resume failure.
The new login screen is pretty cool.
I've been working on the Samsung NC20 all week, creating a platform for the JavaFX developers in my group.
I've been working on Ubuntu as OpenSolaris does not like the 64 bit VIA Nano processor.
Running Ubuntu through the ugrades from 8.04, 8.10, 9.04 and 9.10, I've gotten everything to work.
My main goal was to allow for 3G network access, I'm using an AT&T 3G Quicksilver USB adapter, you can see from the attached pictures, that 3G networks are totally configurable and controllable via the network manager.
I can turn off the wired ethernet and wifi, and just connect into the AT&T 3G network, I'm on the edge down here at the beach, so the speed is a little slow, but it works.
