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'd encourage everyone trying it on their laptops to continually (or periodically) check out the latest releases from opensolaris.com - they do include significant amounts of changes to hardware drivers. If you do successfully install it, you can also try following the developer stream (which can at times be unstable), but changing you default repository to pkg.opensolaris.org/dev
