The first time I used nexenta I was a little surprised that it was such a bad dekstop OS since it was based on Ubuntu, and Ubuntu is a very smooth desktop OS.

tbh I wouldn't say Ubuntu was a particularly smooth desktop OS either. But then that's my personal bias speaking more than impartial fact.

As for Nexenta, I ran CP1 for about 6 months and I really tried to like it but ultimately found it hard to love.
I'm sure the OS has come alone leaps and bounds since v1, but now that FreeBSD supports ZFS and VirtualBox, there is no need for me to run a Solaris derivative any more.
