Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris In an effort to spur adoption of Solaris, Sun has begun a project code-named Indiana to try to give its operating system some of the trappings of Linux. The project is one of the items on the to-do list of Ian Murdock, founder of the Debian version of Linux and, as of March, Sun's chief operating systems officer. Though he wouldn't confirm the name of the project, Murdock - who's from Indiana - discussed the project's essence at the JavaOne conference here Monday, and Sun spokesman Russ Castronovo confirmed the name.

This is a kind of thing that I hate in unix world: "windows-friendly", "linux-like", "whatever-like".
Why this ? The target of all unix projects is look-like something else ? Make your target become something better.
