I think it would be appropriate, especially since participants on the list
might be interested in those services and it brings commercial credibility
to the technology.  Someone new to OpenSolaris and Zones might not be able
to grasp what can be done with the technology or even if its appropriate
for a commercial production environment.

It would be good if it was on a RHS (right hand side) or LHS list - rather
than in your face.  And kept short and free of marketing speak.

Expanding this discussion to other OpenSolaris technologies like, for
example, ZFS, would a similar listing of commercial services based on ZFS
be of interest to our primarily technical community?  I think the answer
is yes.

If we want to promote OpenSolaris we need to promote how it can and is
being used to solve real-world problems and to provide real-world
services.  Without the commercial user community, there would not be an
OpenSolaris - or it would be a research program being worked on by a
handful of people!
