If you’re running any of Apache, MySQL, PHP, Perl, or Squid on Solaris, trot on over to the Cool Stack space and pick up the latest super-optimized builds, now for x64 as well as SPARC. Hey guys, how about Ruby and Python? And someday (hopefully soon) we’ll be doing it with apt-get and wondering what this pkgadd thing used to be.

All of this super-optimized code sure makes for a great selling point for the T1000s. 32 threads of highly optimized goodness for under 10 grand is almost irresistable.

Python is already available as a standard part of Solaris. 2.3 in /usr/sfw/ and 2.4 in /usr for Solaris Express/Nevada.
