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?

OpenSolaris is just a tech demo

As we all know this is only the second attempt of the so called Project Indiana. It is in fact still a tech demo.
I think in the future we will see a much better and user friendlier version coming out.
For the time beeing stick to your favorite Linux Distro, i.e. Ubuntu, Debian, ZevenOS. They are much faster and offer more for a normal desktop user.
OpenSolaris is a nice to have tech demo and testing platform.
