Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris "There's a problem with Solaris and Sun knows it. The installation experience of Solaris (along with other areas) could be greatly improved. The installer doesn't 'suck' as it's easy and known to Solaris administrators, but for a Linux or Windows user it could prove to be a bit challenging. For those of you that have never tried out Solaris, what we've decided to do is to show you this 'usability gap' with the installation process in Solaris compared to Linux. Is the experience really that bad?"

Sun is making changes, I'm sure they are - but it takes time. There are competing voices; the established and winning new customers, moving foward whilst maintaining backwards compatibility.

There is a laundry list of things that I would like to see being fixed but to be completely honest, it may make people like be feel better by venting it on osnews.com, but ultimately, its nothing more than wasting of oxygen and doesn't change anything.
