MEDIA: Sun to launch next version of Solaris on Nov. 15

Discussion in 'Sun Hardware' started by John D Groenveld, Oct 31, 2004.

  1. Robert McMillan got some interview time with Larry Singer regarding
    NC04Q4 on the 15th.
    | One of the most interesting features of Solaris 10 is that it will be
    | the first version of Solaris to support AMD's Opteron processors while
    | running in 64-bit mode, said Dennis Clarke, director of Blastwave.org,
    | a company in Cobourg, Ontario, that develops open source software for
    | Solaris. Current versions of Solaris for x86 process data in smaller,
    | 32-bit chunks, which means they do not perform as well as Solaris 10
    | in certain types of applications, he said.

    Congrats to Dennis Clarke, Phil Bown, and the rest of the Blastwave CSW
    package maintainers for the press coverage.
