OpenSolaris on PPC

Excellent news - Sun Labs has just released into open source its Solaris PowerPC codebase. John Crowell said in an announcement on the community mailing list:

Sun Labs is pleased to announce the release to the OpenSolaris community of a long awaited update to the Solaris PowerPC code base.  This release provides the community with a functional Solaris PowerPC development environment on selected target platforms.  This is a modest, but important step toward reaching the goal of developing the Solaris PowerPC port project to the point where it includes the latest source tree, provides a shell or single user prompt on the target platform, and has enhanced debugging, ie: KMDB.   Community members are encouraged to check out the latest information on the Solaris PowerPC port project page and/or join the discussion list.
