    Default Solaris SPARC straw poll

    Hi

    I'm about to embark on a SPARC build, how many people out there are still using Solaris 8? I'm trying to decide whether to build for 8 or 10, or both.

    Only Solaris 10 here. I have an X2100 that I'd likely convert back to Solaris once this is ready.

    I would venture a guess that the majority of people that would be interested in a solaris port of zimbra are running 9 or newer. I haven't run anything but 10 for at least a year now.

    I just upgraded my sparc box to solaris 10 I love it! I even downloaded the x86 developer version and put it on my toshiba laptop works great. Since solaris 10 is open I figured might as well start using it instead of linux.

    can't wait! -will please a lot of Sun fans
    I say develop for ten, and then later focus on v9 (or older-gasp!) if someone requests it.

    UPDATE: see this thread - http://www.zimbra.com/forums/develop...st3-build.html

    98% of my servers all still solaris 8!! same story with many companies I know about - few people saw the need to upgrade to solaris 9, same deal with 10 until recently. i sat in sol10 training course recently and lots of scratching heads and the invariable 'give me back my init scripts'

    but given the nature of zimbra and the advantages 10 will give, i agree it's a no brainer. will try to keep support for 8 and 9 if poss, currently the sparc build works fine under 8 but the changes I had planned for next build would break that entirely.

    pretty please zimbra reopen the svn tree soon

    Thumbs up

    Solaris 10 (SPARC) would be huge! I would love to see the performance on the Sun T2000 servers.
