This is a followup meeting to our Solaris 10 Launch Event that occurred some months ago. Now that Solaris 10 has been officially released, there are various new topics and new operating system components that Sun can more easily talk about (previously they could only discuss them under non-disclosure). There is a lot to cover, and we expect a great meeting with a large turnout.

Some items to be covered at this meeting:
We learned at the last meeting that Sun is very capable of spending a full day talking on each Solaris topic listed above.
