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?

Not only does it run like whale on land, it doesn't even give you security updates for releases.

Just pathetic.


Just use Linux! It is really free, you can get free updates for up to 7 years in some cases and BtrFS will wipe the floor with ZFS.
