Why OpenSolaris is an Ideal Development Platform
A video presentation by Sun's Roman Shaposhnik at the June 25 OpenSolaris Developer Conference in Prague is worth a look. The talk focuses on the reasons why it makes sense to develop applications on the OpenSolaris platform with Sun Studio as a tool of choice.
The video also features a talk by Adriaan De Groot, who discusses the nuances of building the KDE Project in C++ with Sun Studio on OpenSolaris. In addition, Dennis Chemoivanov from Tocarema AB is at the podium with a pitch of a commercial style of developing with OpenSolaris. Interesting insights!
