Oracle and SUN I just emerged, blinking, from the world of Skyrim, only to realise Sun Oracle has released the 11th version of Solaris (well, technically it's the 7th, but okay, we'll roll with it). I'll be honest and upfront about it: Solaris is totally out of my league, and as such, it's very hard for me to properly summarise what this release is all about, so I won't even try.

Not really. Solaris 11 is not based on Nevada. It's based on Indiana! It's a much more radical change from the classic Solaris than you would imagine and much closer to a GNU/Linux distro in some aspects. It still has the Solaris goodies that no Linux distro has.
