Posted by rjdohnert in Uncategorized.

Simon Phipps has announced the Get OpenSolaris.org website.  This on the heels of Sun joining the FSF.  The kits are free and global delivery is free.  Since Canonical quit offering the free CD’s for Ubuntu Sun is the only one doing this and these are DVD’s not CD’s with the complete source included.  No type of support is included with the kit.  The kits include the following:

  • Solaris Express — Preview future features of Sun’s Solaris Operating System. Also inside: ZFS, DTrace, Containers, and hundreds of other unique features.
  • Live CDs — These bootable images allow you to check out community-built distributions of OpenSolaris, each with unique features:

    Nexenta OS
  • Sun Studio compilers — Get advanced features for developing applications on Sun Solaris SPARC and x86/x64 platforms.
  • OpenSolaris source code

So order yours today.
