Nice work, guys. The first present is VirtualBox which succeeds VMWare server on my computer. Okay, VirtualBox is made in Germany by a small company and not made by Sun engineers.
OpenSolaris 2008.5 is very impressive too, even in VirtualBox. But Sun should mention that if you want to change from dhcp configured network interfaces to static interfaces, you should definetly follow the guide and additionally edit /etc/nsswitch.conf to make adress resolution work.
