Linux Distribution: Nexenta OS Alpha 3
Url: http://www.gnusolaris.org/

Nexenta OS Alpha 3 The third alpha release of Nexenta OS, a new operating system combining the OpenSolaris kernel with Debian GNU/Linux utilities and packages, is now available. What's new?

About Nexenta OS Alpha 3
This release contains 3,596 packages, and in particular:

* OpenOffice 2.0 (distributed with both InstallCD and LiveCD).

* Storage Subsystem (thanks to OpenSolaris Storage Community!)

* OpenSolaris build #34, non-DEBUG kernel.

In addition, Alpha 3 provides:
* LiveCD
The LiveCD "Alpha 2" problem is now fixed. Also, we were able to fit in
the entire OpenOffice 2.0 suite (110MB compressed) into the LiveCD image, and
still keep the result below 700MB, which is suitable for most CD writers.
The trick: ZFS compression.
* NexentaOS Installer: added time zone management. The Alpha 3 Installer will
upgrade from both Alpha 1 and Alpha 2, will recognize removable drives, and
InstallCD upgrade is "almost there" but it is not a true live upgrade
yet. So, if you have NexentaOS installed don't run 'apt-get dist-upgrade'
upgrading the system as documented above, as this will pick up the new kernel
bits. APT is currently switched to support Alpha 3.
