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?

I honestly don't know why people bother trying opensolaris. Its crap. Solaris Express Community Edition (SXCE) is where its at. OpenSolaris is based on SXCE, but with the IPS package manager. I never really liked IPS when I tried opensolaris. However, it will take a little more effort to get SXCE into a usable desktop form.
