Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris "There's a problem with Solaris and Sun knows it. The installation experience of Solaris (along with other areas) could be greatly improved. The installer doesn't 'suck' as it's easy and known to Solaris administrators, but for a Linux or Windows user it could prove to be a bit challenging. For those of you that have never tried out Solaris, what we've decided to do is to show you this 'usability gap' with the installation process in Solaris compared to Linux. Is the experience really that bad?"

Can it really be that. All people are talking about is how technically good linux users are becuase they have their terminal and bla bla bla.

this is from the text: "...but for a Linux or Windows user it could prove to be a bit challenging..."

To bad for all linux users if they cannot install solaris and to bad for all windows users if it is the same for them.

No it isn't. I have installed them all (Linux, BSD, Solaris) and I find them all pretty easy. You just have to know what you're doing, which can't be learnt from clicking around in Windows, Mac OS X or Ubuntu.

I am suspicious when people say they know Linux even if they can't even type the most basic commands to administer a system.
