OpenSolaris Storage Community Now Translated

Just a quick note to let all of you know that the OpenSolaris storage community pages have been translated to Spanish, French, Japanese, Portugues, Russian, and Simplified Chinese.  You can change the language from the left-hand nav bar or the Important Links section.

We hope this will help our storage community reach more of you around the globe.

If you have any questions or comments, send your thoughts to the storage community.  Also, let us know if you'd like to get involved in any future translation efforts.
