Sun updates Solaris 10 to include legacy app support

By Justin Mann on
Further news coming from Sun Microsystems this week. The company has issued an update for Solaris 10 that enables the operating system to virtualize older Solaris programs inside containers, in particular Solaris 8 and 9 applications.

The built-in virtualization will particularly appeal to businesses still relying on older versions of the operating system, adding a less steep path for migration.

And while this doesn't affect the desktop user at all, it is still an interesting tidbit that shows how virtualization is moving forward in many aspects, showing some of its potential as a key technology in future computing.
