So in response to Liam's incessant goading (just kidding Liam) I
pulled down OpenIndiana's latest Hipster distribution and installed it
on a machine to see what it's like.
The machine was a random x86 "server" that I had lying around, a Dell
R200, 1U, 2.66GHz Core2 Duo (E7300), 4GB of RAM, with a 160GB SATA drive.
The installation went very fast; so fast in fact that I wasn't certain
that it had actually installed anything. But it had, and it booted
right up. It installed with a ZFS root pool. I put it on the network
and am logged in via ssh, just looking around a bit. It's very responsive.
My first thought: It's Solaris, and that's all there is to it. Good
