See this post here and then here for details on how to sign up. This is definitely a good thing because I don’t see VMware spending the time to build a Sparc compliant VM platform anytime soon.
Having a number of Sparc boxes under my infrastructure I am dying to get my little hands on this and tweak with it to my hearts content. Will it ever rival VMware? I doubt it but for those of us who desperately need to leverage Sparc based hardware for platform testing this could be a god send.
Maybe someone in the blogosphere will take pity on me and let me in behind the velvet rope to put this through its paces. My contact info is there. Reach out and I will definitely run this stuff until it drops!
