Phoronix: OpenIndiana 151a Finally Sees An Update
OpenIndiana, the operating system seeking to let Sun Microsystems' OpenSolaris project live on within the open-source community, is finally out with an update. This isn't a stable OpenIndiana release but rather is still a pre-release to 151a...
This is the first update in the a series since a7, however a lot of work has been going on in Illumos kernel itself and in the "hipster" repository where the "bleeding-edge" stuff is happening.
