Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris The Linux desktop has come a long way. It's a fully usable, stable, and secure operating system that can be used quite easily by the masses. Not too long ago, Sun figured they could do the same by starting Project Indiana, which is supposed to deliver a complete distribution of OpenSolaris in a manner similar to GNU/Linux. After using the latest version for a while, I'm wondering: why?

No doubt that future acquisitions are causing uncertainty, but a lot of judgements around performance etc have been made on 2 year+ old operating systems - I've seen a lot of FUD recently about how someone should migrate to Linux because they're doing a comparison with Solaris 8 and Solaris 9. A lot of enterprise systems will obviously install once and leave for several years, but to ignore Solaris 10 would be foolish IMO.
