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?"

I concur about "Solaris is not Linux". I didn't care for Linux much when I first started using it, because I was much more familiar with Solaris. Now I can be equally frustrated with both ;)

Concerning #6 and autologin, you may be in luck.

Here are a couple of links that should help:
http://library.gnome.org/gdm/unstable/solaris.html.en

Looks like you'll need pam_allow.so.1, either compiled yourself or get it from Solaris Express.
