hi all, i'm reading up on "branded" solaris zones.  it seems they have
implemented a similiar ABI that is avail in the BSD's to allow gnu-linux
binaries to run on a BSD kernel.  it's been taken a step further to allow
linux distro's to run inside a solaris zone...which to me seems pretty
execellent as you import the ability to run all the solaris debugging and
performance analysis tools (dtrace etc.) against the linux binaries.

two questions:
1) anyone running this on the list?
2) anyone heard anything about *BSD "branded" zones (seems the lx
interface is linux specific).
