My secret plan is to try and convert some people from Solaris to FreeBSD, now that a lot of them won't have valid support contracts on their non-Sun hardware. :-)

I'm not sure we have this news up on our web site yet, but if not, we will soon. Many potential FreeBSD users in the Solaris space had pointed out that this was a critical feature omission ... and they were right :-).

Good stuff!
