Earlier publications, documents, and software have included the names SunSoft(TM) and Sun Microsystems Computer Company or SMCC. Due to a Sun Microsystems reorganization, those names are no longer applicable.
For example, in some documents you may find references to a manual that was called SMCC Hardware Platform Guide. In this release, that document is now called Solaris 7 3/99 Sun Hardware Platform Guide. Another example is the supplement CD, which used to be called the SMCC Supplement CD, is now called the Solaris 7 3/99 Sun Computer Systems Supplement CD.
This release of Solaris is called Solaris 7 instead of Solaris 2.7. As the Solaris product line continues to grow, this name change will make it easier for you to determine which products in the Solaris line you might want to use.
In Solaris 7, the transition to the new name change is in process. That means that you will still see references to Solaris 2.7, and even to Solaris 2.x.
The name of the core operating system has not changed. In this release, it is SunOS(TM) 5.7.
The new version of the Solaris(TM) Server Intranet Extension(TM) 1.0 product is named the Solaris(TM) Easy Access Server 2.0 product.
