Conversations I submitted this link:

But it hasn't appeared as a new story, so I thought I might as well post it as a conversation - basically my review of Thinkpad and my experience running OpenSolaris on it. Just a side note, yes, it does run Ubuntu 8.04 very well.

The Ars review

Like many may have already noticed, also Ars Technica has a nice OpenSolaris 2008.05 review:

"First look: OpenSolaris 2008.05 a work in progress"

Anyway, I'm not sure if I agree with the Ars reviewer that the new Nimbus theme in OpenSolaris would really be better than Clearlooks or Ubuntu's Human? It is promising but looks a bit unfinished and incoherent. For example, the Nimbus color choices: a mostly bluish gray coloring combined with bright orange progress bars and the window manager buttons all using different bright colors?

They may have denied it intentionally; you would probably have better luck submitting it as an original feature for OSNews.

It's in the waiting list. I don't do individual items per review anymore, I make review round-ups. The review-after-review items were not particularly popular, so just like the items-for-each-test-release-of-every-distro, they are no longer published.

This is a guideline of course, not a rule. Exceptions will always be made ;) .

In any case, Kaiwai, I have three reviews of 2008.05 in the backend, waiting to be merged into one item. This was supposed to done yesterday, but I was too busy with university work (presentation).
