  • Sun has produced thousands of pages of excellent documentation for Solaris 10, all of which are available in PDF format at docs.sun.com/app/docs/prod/solaris.10.
  • Although less broad than the volunteer software packaging resources that some Linux distributions enjoy, a good range of free, packaged applications are available for Solaris 10 at sunfreeware.com and www.blastwave.org.
  • The Solaris forums are a good place to troll for troubleshooting information and administration tips. Go to forum.sun.com/category.jspa?categoryID=5.
  • OpenSolaris is Suns freely licensed distribution of Solaris 10. At press time, Sun hadnt launched OpenSolaris, but the code for DTrace and licensing information on the project are available at opensolaris.org.
