Postgres by Sun

Sun have released PostgreSQL 8.1.2 beta packages for Solaris 10/sparc, compiled with their nifty compiler and probably got a few nice tweaks in it. I haven't had time to look at the package build scripts yet.
Would be interesting to compare Sun PG package against the plain gcc compiled tarball version.

Now where did I put my Fire 6900 with those fc-al arrays so I can test this properly :)

And oh yes, seems like Oracle XE is getting closer to a production release. The Windows versions was just released as a "pre-production" release and they have renamed HTMLDB to "Application Express" or AE for short. It is a better name than HTMLDB, but far from good.
