Open Solaris is not bad

They have a LONG way to go to catch up to Fedora and Ubuntu though.

For one Open Solaris is SLOWWWWW (Solaris has always been called Slow Laris by most admins I know anyway)

It doesn't support as much hardware on the desktop as Linux and what it does support is not as good as linux yet.

Owned by Sun but does not come with office suite?? Doesn't Sun own an Office Suite?

A lot of out of date packages.

And the worst text crap for setting the keyboard etc during the live CD boot up.

No option to add NTP by default.

I did like their Gnome layout and the config options.
