Re:Pretty Damning review

Perhaps it is damning, but it is only so because the product was not up to speed. I was absolutely stunned that Sun had not upgraded the core OS at all since the initial release.

I look forward to testing the Solaris-based JDS in a few months, but only if it isn't based on Solaris 7. I have the feeling that the Solaris JDS will be superior in many ways to the SuSE-based JDS, and I don't think that would be a coincidence if it happens.
