Interested in exploring the capabilities of the OpenSolaris OS? A Sun Learning Services beta program makes it really easy: You can run the OS from a browser—with no downloads or installations, for one hour at a time. Brian Leonard's June 18 posting on the OpenSolaris group blog, The Observatory, has the details, complete with screen shots and important tidbits of information from the launch site. Be sure to have the login credentials of your Sun online account ready.

Hi Marina, tried it but couldn't get in. Is this a different account from the one I'm using to post this?
