I would like to ask my fellow experts for Solaris resources, including blogs, online books, white papers that can help a UNIX administrator. Also things related to managing Solaris/UNIX related projects.

Thank you.

    Other Useful Sun/Solaris Web Sites

    If you have questions about Sun Workstations and the Solaris operating system and its related software, investigate the sites below. Nearly any answer to any question you might have or any freeware software you might need can be found at one of these sites. Most of these links start in a new or different browser window. Some of the sites may offer shareware, free test or beta versions of software that will eventually be sold, hardware, or perhaps consulting services. I have not used all of these sites, but many are excellent resources.
