Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris The Linux desktop has come a long way. It's a fully usable, stable, and secure operating system that can be used quite easily by the masses. Not too long ago, Sun figured they could do the same by starting Project Indiana, which is supposed to deliver a complete distribution of OpenSolaris in a manner similar to GNU/Linux. After using the latest version for a while, I'm wondering: why?

You can have slickest, most secure kernel with demonic bit crunching strength but if your OS doesn't have software that can competite with other OS's software and offer something more, your kernel isn't going to move further than on the desks of few hobbyists.
