    Community contributor Jürgen Keil and Sun engineer Jan Setje-Eilers have been working together to get OpenSolaris based operating systems to work under Apple's BootCamp. Today Jan announced that he had successfully installed and booted build 36 of Solaris Nevada (plus some hacks). A series of bugfixes to make OpenSolaris distributions "just work" have been identified.

    i think this is great news as this is the other OS I use on a daily basis (well QNX too but thats not important for the moment)
    i hope a large following comes around this as solaris and osx are the best 2 unix's out there hands down

    Sweet, but when I get an Intel Mac, I won't need anything like that.. I mean, OS X has everything I need. :)
