Some recent news of interest:
The pack(5) (i.e. IPS) toolkit continues to make progress. Although it came from the OpenSolaris effort it is really platform independent and IPS is at the core of the new Update Center for GlassFish v3. Check the IPS blog and the IPS Best Practices Wiki. A recent good presentation is outlined in Intro to pkg(5) - I'd like to schedule one for TheAquarium Online series.
Finally a story that is a couple of weeks old; Wikipedia is going to use Sun's OpenStorage products to run MySQL (see Jonathan's entry). Hopefully we will see many more to come in the future as we continue to Optimize the Performance of MySQL on Sun's Systems.
