I made this for Weak-Net a few days ago while idle at work: http://zombie.el.cx/texts/hacking/pdfs/solaris-newbs.pdf
If you run metagoofil like this:
"python metagoofil.py -d sun.com -f pdf -l 500 -o sun.com.html -t sun-dot-com"
"python metagoofil.py -d opensolaris.org -f pdf -l 500 -o opensolaris.org.html -t opensolaris-dot-org"
from any *nix machine you will get about 750 pdfs on Unix skill, from introduction to massive manuals of advanced system administration for anyone interested in learning more about real UNIX.
Here is a link to a girls weblog who works for Sun that has cool insider info and pics about Solaris and Suns new hardware and events:http://blogs.sun.com/mary/tags/solaris
Here is a YouTube user with some really great Sun/Solaris stuff including video tours of Sun's server hardware:http://www.youtube.com/user/SunMicrosystemsInc
This video is my fav, i watched it for inspiration before my interview and first day at my new job:
or if the YouTube hotlink fails:
I have really come to like this Operating System and this company. The Sun hardware i have holds up like a set of tanks on a battlefield. heh. I have been in the process of migrating from Linux to Unix slowly so i can take my system administration tests soon. And, really.. it's a big change. i thought they were closely related, but they aren't. just like i have been dealing with Vista and XP a lot, which i have also come to respect, but still think it is like a toy OS. There's useful things you can do with the command line in DOS if you get familiar with it.
each one seems to have its own charm and good/bad qualities.
Once i get to the AIX/HP-UX part though i think i might take a vacation.
If you are interested in at least giving SunOS10 a try there's also a live CD called Belenix:http://www.genunix.org/distributions/belenix_site/
which is cool, and i will always be around for PM's so far i think i have helped like 12 people in their windows->Linux migrations
oh yeah check it out, i got an email from Dennis Ritchie a few days agao too, when i decided to email him and tell him how much i loved Unix:
Thanks for the kind note. The years do move on-- I never
imagined the system would last so long!
