Zones are an operating system abstraction for partitioning systems, allowing multiple applications to run in isolation from each other on the same physical hardware. This isolation prevents processes running within a zone from monitoring or affecting processes running in other zones, seeing each other's data, or manipulating the underlying hardware.
This project provides the Solaris build and packaging of the X Window System — the glue that holds together the desktop on Unix and Linux systems. X provides the layer between the hardware devices and the desktops such as GNOME and KDE.
LibMicro is a portable set of microbenchmarks that many Solaris engineers used during Solaris 10 development to measure the performance of various system and library calls. LibMicro was developed by Bart Smaalders and Phil Harman as part of their If Linux is faster it's a Solaris bug performance campaign. LibMicro is Open Source and uses the CDDL license.
