Oracle Solaris 11.2: More Posts

Did you see our last Oracle Solaris 11.2 blog post aggregation? Did it leave you hungry for more?  Did you think, "But there's no way there there could be any more!"

Because, now that 11.2's officially released... there's more.  44 more posts, to be exact.

One notable development: there's now a blog dedicated to Oracle Solaris and OpenStack.

Enjoy.

Oracle Solaris 11.2: All the Posts

[UPDATE: did we say all the posts?  After you read these, there are 44 more waiting for you.]

As I hope you've heard already, we launched Oracle Solaris 11.2 last week, and things have been busy ever since. Specifically, our engineers and others have gone nuts, kicking out an incredible number of blog posts.

Glynn Foster has been sending me a continuous stream of links, promising me each time that it's going to die down any old time now ("...typical, the moment I send something out, 2 more blogs appear...").  And I found another one just as I was wrapping this up!

The tally for now stands at almost 50, so settle in, as we proudly present:

Roll Your Own Solaris Blogroll

Something handy I just ran across:

There are lots of people here who blog about Solaris, either as their main topic, or as the occasional tangent. If the blogger has tagged their post appropriately, here's a quick way to find them:

Note that this is a little different from using the "word cloud" you can find in the right-hand column on this page, since that only finds articles tagged in this blog. The above links will find all tagged blogs.oracle.com posts.

Some topics are a little trickier to nail down, because there may not be a standardized tag for the topic, so building a more conventional "blogroll" is on my to-do list.

UPDATE: Steph and Jeff beat me to it -- see the list on OTN.

In the meantime, you can also refer to the post Markus Weber made of interesting Solaris 11 launch-related posts.
