And you still have to register to get the iso. I thought they had learned that that sucks.

Hardly the grandest of tasks

People happily give away their life history on facebook yet not a username and password to sun for a free os..

Yeah, it does blow. But if you follow the Project Indiana link, you can get a developer preview without registration. Its also got a better integrated Gnome desktop which IMO makes all the difference for a test system.

Eh, the site you linked to gives me a proxy error.

www.mailinator.com is a good site for throwaway email addresses. No registration or anything required.

There is a reason for that; SXCE still has third party code in there which needs you to accept a licence before you can download the code.

This issue has been explained many times - its getting to the point of as being as stupid as those who go on about SkyOS and whether it should be opensourced.
