It's funny, when I read Tim Bray saying this:
Apt-get is just so unreasonably fucking great. Why arenít we using it for Solaris updates?
My first reaction was "I've been wondering that for YEARS!" Of course, I wondered the same thing about Red Hat for nearly as long.
It's funny how open source solutions often outdo the commercial guys--even the ones who "get" open source.
Maybe Sun should offer a Debian style package repository for Solaris? I know there are some unofficial attempts at this, but I'm talking about a full-blown supported setup.
