Solaris The Best Sun Invention ?


Happy Birthday !!
I remember Sun Microsystems' 20th and 25th birthdays quite well. Those were reasons to celebrate.
However, it slipped my mind that today, Feb 24th 2012, would have been Sun's 30th birthday.
How did I notice ?
I follow Scott McNealy on Twitter..
He started off with this tweet today:


He then started off with his first "recollection":


So Solaris is his first thought of great memories, and specifically inventions, in this case ?
Brilliant !

PS: To see what else he remembers and misses, see @scottmcneally

Sun VDI 3 (part 2 of 3): Configuration

This is part 2 of a series of entries (planned are 3) about the new Sun VDI 3.

Part 1 can be found here. It might be useful to watch this one first.


Watch the screencast below to learn about how easy it is to configure LDAP integration, desktop providers, and pools of desktops in VDI 3:



Sun VDI 3 (part 1 of 3): Installation

Recently, I had the pleasure, together with my coworkers Mike and Joost, to have three machines available to install, configure, and play around with the new Sun VDI 3 (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure 3).


I plan to create three entries for this:

  • Sun VDI 3 (part 1 of 3): Installation
  • Sun VDI 3 (part 2 of 3): Configuration
  • Sun VDI 3 (part 3 of 3): Usage


They way installation and configuration is now implemented in VDI 3 is sweet, and very easy to do.

If you're happy and familiar with using command line, the installation is extremely easy. Still even, if you're not using command line on a Unix based system very often, it is very easy.

Plenty more informtation about VDI 3 can be found here.

See below the first screencast, focusing on the installation:

Sun, Intel, and OpenSolaris

As we all know, Intel is quite a big contributor to the opensolaris project.

Here's a short, but great summary by our friend Dave Steward at Intel, of the things they contributed and achieved over the last couple of years !

Great job !
