Package Manager in new OpenSolaris

A nice demo with overview of basic package management in upcoming OpenSolaris 2008.05:

I can't resist observations that:
  • default Package Manager looks like streamlined Synaptic
    (one of the best!)

  • package management written in Python reminds me of Gentoo

  • the whole idea of multiple repositories reminds me of Debian

  • package management Python tools remind me of dpkg on steroids

  • Ian Murdock works for Sun right now, and he is behind all of this ;-)

So I'd say they took the best ideas and people so far.
I hope the end result will be equally great as well!
