Yeah... Really, Nexenta as a desktop OS is ...well... how do you say`? Clumsy?

Naw, we will see what happen.

Isn't Nexenta the main sponsor of Illumos? So, maybe NC will never be targeted for desktop user, or?

Besides: I do not knwo, how StormOS can help, since they are changing from Ubuntu to Debian Userland.

Nexenta may also change to debian userland in 4.0+ I believe (check the URL in the story).

I've read their announcement and I am confused, do they use the Solaris ON distribution - that is, the libc implementation for example or does it pretty much grab the kernel and throw the GNU user space on top? I'm getting confused messages as to how they're going about it.
