Great job, people of Nexenta! I used Debian waaaaay back when, and recently switched from FBSD to Solaris. I can only hope some of the hard work you guys are putting into package management/ease of use rubs off on Sun. ;)

Keep up the great work, it's very impressive to see how far you've come in such a short time!
