Open Solaris 2009.06

Some time ago I built OpenSolaris 2008.05 and 2008.11 on VirtualBox aand had various arguments with the software alone the way. To be fair 2008.11 was pretty good it was '05 that was rough.

Well today I've built the latest version on VirtualBox and I'm pleased to say it just worked, and installed quickly and cleanly. As always you have to install OpenOffice post install but saving that things were pretty slick.

The question really is, I guess, is where will Open Solaris go post the Oracle takeover of Sun?

It would be shame to see a project that was finally delivering so successfully just fade away ...
