Native in Nexenta OS

Alberto Escudero announced the release and integration of a native 2.0 in NexentaOS (alpha5) on his blog on May 16.

"NexentaOS is a complete GNU-based open source operating system built on top of the OpenSolaris kernel and runtime. The distribution uses SunOS kernel and a “rebuild/port” of most of the Ubuntu's userland packages. Yes!, Debian packaging system in a Open Solaris OS," he explained.

"The goal of this effort is to compile in a OpenSolaris environment like NexentaOS and investigate what will take to rebuild the software using GCC," he added.
