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?"

Solaris installation

I do not see anything wrong with the Solaris Installer, ok, it is not so friendly and "eye-candy"-ed like the Fedora, Suse or Ubuntu installer, but it is extremely useful and does its work fine.

The only complain I have with the SXDE installer, is the mount of minimum memory required to proceed to the OS installation: 768MB is unacceptable for an installation process.
