    Default A Quick Tour Of Oracle Solaris 11

    Phoronix: A Quick Tour Of Oracle Solaris 11

    Solaris 11 was released on Wednesday as the first major update to the former Sun operating system in seven years. A lot has changed in the Solaris stack in the past seven years, and OpenSolaris has come and gone in that time, but in this article is a brief look through the brand new Oracle Solaris 11 release.

    Why? Jpeg looks fine and takes up a lot less space.

    Not necessarily true. Especially for system screenshots. Example: http://imgur.com/HAU7i,Yl2M5 (jpg-80: 131 KiB, png: 68 KiB).

    Works especially well with a limited color palette like in screenshots.

    roll back files to a later date
    Solaris 11 even knows what your files will look like tomorrow. Not that's what I call AI!

    i still want to know what exactly makes solaris a cloud os, what makes it so much better for virtualization, and what it has to offer over linux or free-bsd at this point.


    as for everyone fighting over jpg and png - jpg DOES look fine depending on how compressed it is, and jpg is ideal for websites because it is a bit faster than png and it gets the image out there and thats all we need. i don't think the little bit of lossy quality is a big deal when we're looking at an OS screenshot for only a few seconds. personally i don't really care, png is fine with me. but wow some of you are hostile to an unnecessary level.
