OpenSolaris - stable device driver solution?

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 69.105.99.48] on September 17, 2008 03:24 AM
Is it true that drivers written for open solaris' device driver scheme can be expected to work for every version of open solaris? I would consider that to be _huge_ feature. There would be no need to compile a driver for the specific version/distribution and you could be sure that the software you own or write would have a terrific lifespan without any reworking/recompiling/repackaging. It would be easier to install software as well.

You all know that linux will never have that ability...
