DMD and Solaris
Hi,

I think we need to be clear on this: Does DMD support Solaris? I would 
expect GDC and LDC to support it, but it doesn't seem like there's any 
maintained support for it in DMD.

Not anymore - Solaris is a dead end operating system.

OK. I think I'll submit some patches to remove Solaris code from DMD's 
druntime then.

Solaris may be a dead end, but there are a few Solaris related OSs that 
are alive and going strong.
Illumos comes to my mind.

It has been OpenSolaris, or latterly OpenIndiana that has been
receiving most attention.

I'd rather they were left in for now.

Most enterprise customers we work with, seem to think otherwise.

If someone wants to work on a Solaris port, I'm open to it.

Actually I did start one, several months ago, but did not do much 
more than change a few version() statements.

Real life keeps getting in the way :)

I bet they wish it were a dead operating system though :-)
