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?

The reason

The reason it sucks as a desktop distribution is that it isn't a desktop distribution. I'd love to see OpenSolaris as a server distribution, I don't understand why Sun managed to make such a mess out of a project that could bring a really nice server experience.
