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?

The information in the "Why LD_LIBRARY_PATH is bad" link is old, but it has become acceptable practice among administrators I know:

It also would not entirely surprise me that Sun would potentially drop a feature that is useful.
