First OpenSolaris ARM release

Great news from OpenSolaris ARM Port project: first OS release for ARM platform is now available. This release support NEC Electronics's NaviEngine 1 (NE1) and has some interesting features: genunix, unix and required device drivers are statically linked at building time as vmunix to save the startup time, zfs is modified to save the runtime memory.

So I hope that after some time we'll see OpenSolaris powered PDA.
