Hi folks.

Those of you who were at the February 8th MUUG meeting might recall my
making a preliminary announcement about an upcoming presentation in Winnipeg
on Solaris 10.  Further details have since been forwarded to me, so I now
pass it along to you.  (This will be only two days after our next monthly
meeting, so I thought I should give you all a "heads up" in case you want to
register early.)

What was sent to me was a PDF attachment, but rather than forward that to
all of you, I thought I'd just extract the relevant text and include it
below...  (You can get the pretty pictures from their web site, if you like.)


It's Here.  Solaris 10.

Demanding businesses demand innovation that pays. Demanding businesses

There's never been an operating system like the new Solaris(TM) 10
Operating System. It doesn't just promise lower operating costs and
better performance. It actually delivers them - and more.


Please join Sun Microsystems of Canada for a Solaris 10 Lunch & Learn,
as we bring one of our key Corporate Senior Engineers from the Sun
Kernel Development Group across the Canadian Prairies.

By attending this seminar you will learn about the benefits of the new
Solaris 10 OS and how it can help you improve performance and make your
operating environment more efficient and secure, while reducing
