[OpenIndiana-discuss] is the newly released orac-sol 11 an advance compared to oi?

Should OI continue to support UltraSparc II/III/IV systems if possible?
I sure hope so.
I have Solaris 11 Express still running on my SparcBlade 2000, because, to the
best of my knowledge, there are no OI iso images for Sparc.
The fact that Solaris 11 Express runs fine on these systems, and Solaris 11 GA
does not load tells me that support for these boxes were discontinued for some
reason other than technical reasons, i.e. politics, financial, etc.
Supporting recently discontinued Sparc systems seems to be a great way to pick
up additional OI converts.
