Or, out today, as an add-on to solaris 9 x86:
That's JDS2, but having Sol 10 x86 B69 (which includes JDS3) and Sol
10 x86 with a manually installed JDS2 (it requires some work to get it
to work under B63 - better off run it on sol9 or use sol 10 b69). I
cant see much difference (except that B69 doesn't include StarOffice
and JDS2 does). Both are based on Gnome 2.6.
You need good horsepower for this. I'm running B69 w/JDS3 on a Sun
Blade 150 and it's borderline (even with an add-on XVR-100 instead of
the onboard PGX64). XFCE is a better choice (particularly if you are
used to CDE).
