Solaris 10 all AMPed up

The latest news in (S/L)AMP system is pre-built packaged coolstack software. To quote the coolstack site discussing compile time optimization "This results in anywhere between 30-200% performance improvement (depending on workload/application) over standard binaries." To which I say WOOT!

I have to say Solaris AMP or AMPS. SAMP really doesn't do it for me.


In other vaguely related news, I saw mail recently that PHP 5.5 should be available by default in OpenSolaris some time soon.


Also if you are quick about it, it appears that you can have a DVD of the latest SXDE (Solaris Express Developer Edition) sent to you for free. The DVD includes the Solaris AMP packages (so does the download) so you don't have to get them separately.


I am currently one rev prior to the SXDE release in my parallels instance, I guess I should start downloading a new iso.
