Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris "Oracle today announced Oracle Solaris 11.1, delivering over 300 new performance and feature enhancements to the Oracle Solaris 11 product family." This stuff goes way over my head.

"I can't believe 80% of Linux reviews are reviews of how pretty the installer is, the desktop theme and the default package selection.

That drives me nuts as well! Those are the least significant parts of a running system.
"

But sadly, the most important ones considered by possible users. The "first sight effect" is important here. So any OS, no matter how powerful it is, will not appeal if the installer isn't a pretty conglomerate of GUI dialogs, in sequential manner, with defaults tailored for desktop use. Even among "geeks" (those who actually install an OS, because ordinary users aren't aware of what it is) this seems to be more and more important, and mostly found in... Linux reviews, yes.
