Linux Technology preview is dead! Long live the Sun Studio Express!

Today is the first day of the LinuxWorld in San Francisco (and actually I'm writing this waiting for a speaker to arrive and give us a lecture on what's new in the field of buffer overflow exploits and related fields of fine hacking ;-)) which is quite exciting especially if you take into account that it'll be my first LinuxWorld where I participate as a speaker , giving a presentation on 'Unleashing the Power of Chip multi-threading with software tools'. On top of which our our team has just released Sun Studio Express 2, which signifies the end of the Linux Technology Preview phase and makes Linux just another platform Sun Studio supports. We should all be grateful to the Sun Studio Linux Technology Preview Program since it actually made it possible to break the physiological ice and create the real deal -- Sun Studio Express. Which is basically our way of making the development as transparent to you as possible. It is also your opportunity to tell us what's wrong with our software before its too late for us to fix.

Anyway -- it is a great time to subscribe to Sun Studio Express, start using it on regular occasion and give us your feedback.

As I said -- this particular one is totally focused on Linux and comes with the boatload of features and bug fixes so that even the pickiest ones shouldn't be disappointed ;-) And we've got Solaris developers covered as well! Its all there. Sun Studio Express gives you exact same bits we use internally. For those of you in close proximity to San Francisco it is also a great time to drop by our booth in Moscone Center (we're actually located in the AMD's pavilion -- so don't be fooled) talk to us and for the really curious ones may be even attend my presentation on Wed 08/16/2006, 10:15 AM - 11:15 AM. Hope to see you there!

I just saw your presentation at SDN channel and your flash tour of sun-studio preview and I am very exited to test this new release. I wanted to know what problems I should expect to encounter in the current preview release with respect to gcc & glibc compatibility & ABI compatibility in linux cause the release notes are rather short. I'm already having issues with sun studio 11 stable in solaris 10 x86 U2 trying to compile programs designed to use gcc. There are lots of multimedia libraries that are written to use gcc and are very difficult to build using suncc. I know this isn't Sun's fault, so a nice howto to show us how to get the best out of Sun Studio could come in handy. The work you guys are doing is really appreciated and I see a real benefit in using sun studio over gcc, sun studio is a BETTER compiler.

Thanks Tomas! It was really nice of you to say that about Sun Studio. Now, as for your question may I suggest that since the subject you asked about is so important -- would you please consider joining our forums and posting the question to: Sun Studio Forums I can answer it there and the rest of the community would have an opportunity to chime in as well. Thanks, Roman.
