Way to go Sun.  Knowing how hard it is to get admins to even apply
patch clusters, what is the chance they will sift through the patch
reports?  Approximately zero.

Does anyone know the id of the patch that fixes the Solaris 10
startup/configuration scripts to be like Solaris 2.0-9? :)

I'm having a hard time convincing myself that there are any improvements
in 10 worth the hassle of dealing with the new obsfucated system.
