It's been a pretty good year. Lots of cool stuff has happened and lots of interesting technology is maturing and evolving. Most notably OpenSolaris, While most other UNIX-vendors are pretty much sitting on their behinds watching time go by Sun is kicking in a higher gear. ZFS is being adopted by the FreeBSD and MacOS communities. Iscsi is maturing and VMWare is getting some pretty cool features, Veritas is giving away the basic edition of Storage Foundation. Oracle 11g looks very promising.
All well, I'm flying back to the UK tomorrow (finally), can't wait to get back to London.
