Opensolaris as a storage OS

Robin Harris of Storagemojo writes about the new developments regarding Solaris and Storage - OpenSolaris: the universal storage platform?:

OpenSolaris is becoming the finest storage platform out there. Adding CIFS support to the kernal is a Big Deal: OpenSolaris will be industry’s first OSS universal storage platform.
Only a company with nothing to lose in the traditional big iron storage business could be so bold. My hat is off to Jonathan and Bob.
