“Late Wednesday, the Santa Clara, Calif.-based server and software maker released for download Project Indiana, now formally called OpenSolaris Developer Preview. It’s the precursor to a supported product due in early 2008 that’s slated to be called OpenSolaris 3/08. In the long run, Sun hopes to make Solaris more digestible to a larger audience, much of which is familiar with Linux but not with noted Solaris features such as DTrace diagnostic tool and the ZFS file system.” Full Story

About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
