New Release Open Solaris

Jesus ... is like the Christmas tree. Slackaware and now Open Solaris ? Whos next?

Ok ... Open solaris was released. The last release was in May: Project Indiana.

New features:

1. Time Slider, a Gnome GUI that makes Sun's not-for-the-uninitiated Zettabyte File System (ZFS) functionality, like instant data snapshots, available to all users.

2. Distribution Constructor so users can build their custom software stack depending on how they're going to use the OS and a storage feature called Comstar Storage Framework (?) that lets developers create an open storage server.

3. OpenOffice 3, Firefox 3, NetBeans 6.5 and - good heavens - the NetBeans-opposing Eclipse IDE.
