OpenSolaris 2008.11

Now I had some time to play with OpenSolaris 2008.11.

  • Installs well on physical hardware (dual Pentium III) and VirtualBox under OS X (768 Mb RAM).
  • Does not install well under vmware as vmware tools goes haywire.
  • Eclipse 3.4.0 is available in the package system - whee! - but is not integrated in the menu - boo! - so you must run /usr/eclipse/eclipse manually and software updates are disabled, and no web browser setup. It is a start though :D
  • ssh logins are enabled as part of the install.
Danish is a supported language and the translations are ok. That's nice - Swedish somehow doesn't quite fit for Danes.

So next is looking at whether dtrace can be useful from within Java combined with logging.
