Erlang on Solaris x86

Joel,
I tested erlang (10B-something), did not install yaws or ejabberd, on  
Solaris x86 briefly and it works.  Nothing thorough enough to know if  
its clear for production.  My testing was done with Solaris 10 as a  
VMware guest.
BTW, I TextDrive might sell you containers on their Niagra servers as  
well as what they currently advertise for their Opteron ones.  I sent  
a few rounds of email with one of their sales people on this.  My  
only problem was I can get more horsepower from my own dedicated  
server than with the current pricing on the TextDrive containers  
(there are obviously other benefits to their container solution than  
raw horsepower of your own dedicated server but I was worried about  
their cost structure as my app needed more resource).
I think TextDrive has a winning strategy...lets hope guys like me can  
find it affordable ;-)...
