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?

Well I read most of the comments on this topic and wow. I am a average Linux/ Windows user who has installed several versions of Open Solaris and each time I can say it was the same results, a system that ran slow and a lack of drivers and other apps I can easily obtain in windows or Linux, I prefer Linux over Windows. So I can say for the average user who wants something that just works and does not require allot of tweaking and so on will not go for Open Solaris. I really don't pay much attention to the kernel, as long as it supports my hardware and as long as the ditro makes available proprietary drivers for my Video card that I do not have to compile myself then I am happy.
