Toshiba laptop to factory preinstall OpenSolaris


Sun and Toshiba announced today a factory-ready laptop running OpenSolaris.
At last, at long last! Its high time we got a popular laptop maker to pre-install (Open)Solaris (they will actually start shipping in 2009). Reading some of the comments on blogs and news stories, reaction seems to be more on the positive side. Maybe, now I can find an excuse to upgrade my laptop, though its technically in reasonable running condition!

And you \*definitely\* need a new laptop, my friend... :-)

I really hope that this new Toshiba Laptop will have two internal hard disk drives in it so that we can use ZFS to create a mirrored zpool. If you can't have a mirrored zpool then you lose a lot of the important error correcting features of ZFS.

Dave, I promise you that my next laptop will sport an Intel chip inside!
