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?

"We're comparing OpenSolaris here, not Solaris. OpenSolaris should install in 15 minutes or less. So your comment and experience don't quite apply."

BinaryCrusader (what an odd pseudonym), you ought to read the posts before you dive off into commenting. There is a short initial sentence followed by a second sentence that shows (or tried to show) my original good feelings towards Solaris and hence Open Solaris. These original good feelings were then changed by the Open Solaris experience.

I'm sorry if that is too difficult to understand.

The world would be a nicer place if we occasionally thought first and then acted; don't you agree?

Regards,
Peter
