OpenSolaris with Windows Applications??

After much fussing with OS’s over the last few months I bit the bullet and virtualized my laptop. Now with OpenSolaris as the host OS and innotek’s open source virtual machine I can run Windows apps to my hearts content on my Solaris desktop. I currently have Windows Server 08 installed but may switch to Vista once the Vista recovery cd’s for my laptop arrive.

Yay, Unix with my SonicStage minidisc player software.

Goodbye Windows Server 2008

Well it’s back to OpenSolaris as Windows Server 08 had one problem after another, first the network list service crapped out, then COM+, then FTP no longer worked. Sigh, I guess RC0 is still not ready for prime time.
