OpenSolaris 2008.11 is now fully and properly released. At opensolaris.com you’ll find several video interviews, including Sun’s all-star cast names like John Fowler, Tim Cramer, David Comey, and Dr. Stephen Hahn. There is a demo of Time Slider, Sun’s time-machine like functionality added to GNOME’s file browser which leverages ZFS snapshot navigation in an easy to use graphical way. There are also presentations with both Intel and AMD on leveraging their technologies both present and forthcoming.
If you haven’t downloaded the new release yet, make it your weekend project. It runs as a LiveCD so grab it and play.
