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?

Really? Have you read what I wrote about BE, two posts above yours? And you can install whatever you want, and if it breaks anything you just rollback in an instant via snapshot. This way you can have an environment for Eclipse java 1.5 in one BE in GRUB, another with Eclipse Java 1.6, Netbeans, etc etc etc.

This is not useful for desktops, you think??
