OpenSolaris and VMware Workstation: Much Better!

It has been awhile since I played around with OpenSolaris on VMware Workstation. The good news is that Solaris 10 is now officially supported on VMware Workstation 5.5.2 but still no VM tools which is a bummer but no big deal. So I gave SXCR build 48 on the latest VMware workstation a try. Before there were some issues with the video that required readjustment after the install, well no more, it just works. Even the problem with the screen saver seems to fixed now too.

So if you want to try out Solaris but don't have the right hardware, give VMware Workstation a try. It is much less annoying to deal with than it used to be!

VMWare 5.5.2 begins to support Solaris 10 (GA and Update 1) with VM Tools.
