"Sun Microsystems on Wednesday will unveil its Solaris 8 operating system, which will include hundreds of new features and enhancements over Solaris 7, a representative for Sun said Monday."
"Solaris 8, which has been available in beta version since last November, is aimed at users looking to move their data centers onto the Internet. Sun called reports that Solaris 8 will be "free and open code" inaccurate."
"One feature of Solaris 8 that has been anticipated is Live Update, which keeps the old operating-system preferences and log files intact as the user installs Solaris 8, according to sources."
